The Lake County League of Libraries and The Diversity Center of Northeast Ohio will discuss disability rights and access during the next meeting of its Big IDEA Book Club at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21.
Our discussion book will be Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the 21st Century, an anthology of essays from disability-rights activists and people living with disabilities describing their lives and experiences. The book club is open to all, and copies of Disability Visibility are available at your local library.
The League of Libraries formed the Big IDEA Book Club to discuss books and issues involving Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access. The discussion will be hosted via Zoom. People can sign up to join the talk online.
The Lake County League of Libraries is a collaboration between all the public and academic libraries in Lake County. It was formed to host larger-scale programs than any of the libraries could create individually. The League includes Fairport Harbor Public Library, Kirtland Public Library, Lakeland Community College Library, Lake Erie College Library, Madison Public Library, Mentor Public Library, Morley Public Library, Perry Public Library, Wickliffe Public Library and Willoughby-Eastlake Public Library.
