All Abilities Awareness Week

October 12, 2017
October 16-20, 2017
McQuade Library

Don’t judge a book by its cover!

 

McQuade Library is teaming up with the Office of Accessibility Services to sponsor Merrimack’s first All Abilities Awareness Week.  Events will be held throughout the week to increase knowledge and understanding of issues of disability, diversity, access, and inclusion in the college community.

MACKtalks

Each day from 12-1, come to the Promise Suite on the 3rd floor of McQuade to hear a “MACKtalk”.  Students of many different abilities will tell their stories in a TEDtalk format.  Light refreshments will be served.

 

MOVIE NIGHT

On Wednesday October 18, join us for a screening of “Silver Linings Playbook” in the Alden Classroom on the 3rd floor.  The popcorn’s on us! A discussion will be led by Jodi Rachins, Director of Accessibility Services.

 

MATERIALS

Stop by the 1st floor of McQuade to checkout a book or movie on the topics of disability, diversity, access, and inclusion.

 

Institute of Museum and Library Services This project made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
