April is Autism Awareness Month
According to the Autism Society, “Nearly a quarter century ago, the Autism Society launched a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life… Join us in celebration for 2015 National Autism Awareness Month! National Autism Awareness Month represents an excellent opportunity to promote autism awareness, autism acceptance and to draw attention to the tens of thousands facing an autism diagnosis each year.”
Here at the Vicksburg District Library, Mrs. W has created a helpful display highlighting the resources we have available on autism, and we are all eager to help increase awareness and locate any materials you may find useful.
The Book Sale is Coming!
Website Showcase: Books & Authors
One of the many useful databases available to Michigan residents through MEL (the Michigan Electronic Library), Books & Authors is a versatile, detailed way to discover new books and authors to fall in love with. Visit Books & Authors to explore thousands of book recommendations by genre, expert picks, award winners, best-sellers and more. Books & Authors also features a “Read-A-Like Wizard” to help users find books similar to those they’ve enjoyed. The genre recommendations are incredibly detailed, letting users explore all the way down into sub-genres like “Doppleganger Historical Fiction” or “Ranch Life Mysteries”.
If you need help with the site, stop on in and we’ll be happy to help.
