National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM)

Congress has designated October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). The Office of Disability Employment Policy’s goal is to increase the public’s awareness of the contributions and skills of American workers with disabilities. Efforts to educate the American public on issues related to disability and employment actually began in 1945 with Congress passing a law declaring the first week in October each year as “National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week.” In 1988, Congress expanded the week to a month and changed the name to “National Disability Employment Awareness Month.” Although physical disabilities are often recognized, invisible disabilities are sometimes difficult to recognize or understand. Join the Todd Library in celebrating National Disability Employment Awareness Month and visit us to learn more about some of these “invisible” issues.

Banned Books Week (September 29-October 6)

Banned Books Week:  Celebrating the Freedom to Read is observed during the last week of September each year.  Observed since 1982, this annual American Library Association event reminds Americans not to take this freedom for granted.  This year marks its 26th anniversary (September 29 through October 6).

BBW celebrates the freedom to choose or the freedom to express one’s opinion even if that opinion may be considered unorthodox or unpopular and stresses the importance of ensuring the availability of those viewpoints to all who wish to read them.   Intellectual freedom exists only where these two essential conditions are met. Visit the Todd Library to check out a banned book and learn more.
