Libraries and Autism: Why it Matters!

Libraries play a number of roles within their communities, which leaves them uniquely positioned to provide resources and services that can greatly benefit community members with autism spectrum disorder and their friends and families. This webinar introduced the Targeting Autism project spearheaded by the Illinois State Library and funded by a grant from IMLS. Beginning with a brief overview of autism and how it may impact libraries and library staff, the presenters discussed the rationale behind this project, future project plans, and how libraries can benefit from their involvement in this project. RAILS is proud to recognize the 25th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act with this program. For more information, go to
