Autism Awareness Month

Event series highlights programs providing greater access
March 28, 2019
Every day at Sacramento Public Library we make it easier for those with disabilities and cognitive differences to use and enjoy all that the Library offers. Our mantra? Gain access, your way.
We will be showcasing our accessibility programs throughout the month of April to spread the word that the Library is a welcoming community space for everyone. All are welcome here.
