In October we highlight two themes; October 1-15 is for LGBTQIA history and October 16-31is for Disability awareness
LGBTQIA stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Transexual, Questioning or Queer, Intersex, Asexual or Ally. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally. --Library of Congress
October is also Disability Awareness Month. Reflecting the important role disability plays in workforce diversity, this year’s National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) theme is “#InclusionWorks.”-United States Department of Labor
To celebrate these two themes, our library provides October Recommended Reading/Viewing list. The resources linked on this page are mere samples. To see more of them, please click on the "Reading List" link at the top of each month's column: LGBTQIA Pride Reading List and Disability Awareness Reading List. You can also find these materials on our Recommended Reading display rack on the Plaza Level of the library. Please borrow and enjoy them!
