Autism Awareness Week 2018

Autism affects social and communication skills. Research conducted by social care organisation Dimensions, showed that whilst people with autism are already more likely than other people to use a library, a few changes could lead to 92% increasing their use of their local library if some autism friendly adjustments were made.

In Hertfordshire, we want everyone’s experience in our libraries to be enjoyable, positive and welcoming. For those with autism, the experience may not always be easy. 

To celebrate World Autism Awareness Week (26 March - 2 April 2018) we will be promoting our Autism Friendly libraries throughout March. You can find out what's happening in your local library by visiting their facebook page.
