March is Disability Awareness Month
The Monticello-Union Township Public Library is pleased to join the Monticello community and thousands of Hoosiers in celebrating disability awareness month in March. Across the United States during the month of March, Disability Awareness Month activities are underway. In Indiana, community groups, businesses, schools and other organizations are participating in a variety of events to increase our understanding that individuals with disabilities are people first and have many abilities.
During March, the library will host a couple events to celebrate disability awareness month. Throughout March we will have on display an art exhibit featuring art work by CDC consumers. A public reception and awards night will be held at the library on Tuesday, March 1 at 7 p.m.
Mayor Ken Houston will join us as a guest reader at our special disability awareness storytime programs on Tuesday, March 15 and Tuesday, March 29 at 4 p.m. Mayor Houston will read several stories about children with disabilities to an audience of children with and without disabilities.
For more information about these programs, please contact the library at 574-583-2665. You can learn more about Disability Awareness Month at IndianaDisabilityAwareness.org. For information about events happening in Monticello, visit the city's website.
