PCS and the St. Joseph Public Library – East Hills Branch continued their partnership in 2021. PCS helped East Hills improve their collection by evaluating their current selection and offering education around which themes to promote and avoid.
The Library joined PCS in celebrating Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month by creating a display with books and resources about developmental disabilities and inclusion. The library also added books about developmental disabilities awareness and acceptance to their online reading program.
PCS donated 35 new books, one of which was written by a local author with a developmental disability.
Each book contains a tag to inform community members they can call PCS with questions about resources and access for individuals with disabilities and their families.
PCS is extremely grateful to the St. Joseph Public LIbrary for their partnership and we’re excited to work with another organization as passionate about creating awareness as we are!
