AVON — Avon Branch Library is going blue for National Autism Awareness Month. The library will be lit with blue lights every evening this month.
“We are participating in a community-wide effort led by the Avon Local Schools to raise awareness of autism and other disabilities,” said Avon Branch Manager Donna Kelly Sprinkle. “This month, in addition to our adapted story times, we are offering a special program called ‘Off to Work We Go’ in which a presenter from Milestones Autism Resources will present for parents of teens (with autism).”
National Autism Awareness Month was established in the 1970s. The Autism Society estimates that one in 59 American children are diagnosed with autism. For more information on autism, visit autism-society.org
