COVID-19: some of our facilities have reopened. You must be fully vaccinated to enter.

Our Library team has curated a collection of memoirs and stories that celebrate disability and diversity. 

Many of these stories reflect a firsthand experience with disability that shows us how important it is to have inclusion and access for everyone. 

You can share these stories to spark discussion and begin to understand other communities.

These are: 

  • stories to share with young children
  • fictional stories on disability for junior and teens
  • memoirs for adults. 

All of these stories represent people with a disability by what they can do, not by what they can’t.
