Neurodiverse individuals have their own unique way of thinking and experiencing the world around them. Neurodiversity Celebration Week (March 21-27) is a time to recognize and celebrate these individuals.
Interested in learning more about neurodiversity? Explore book recommendations, attend a speaker event, or attend virtual storytimes to learn more about different neurotypes. Actively learning about neurodiversity helps us to remember that differences should be understood, valued, and celebrated!
