Learn About Autism Services at Library on Dec 15

The Children and Teen Services Department of Longmont Public Library was awarded a $10,000 Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services to provide new and enhanced services for Longmont’s autism community. The public is invited to attend the first Spectrum Services Open House on December 15 from noon to 1 pm, as the library opens its doors one hour early for anyone (children and adults) interested in learning more about the expanded services for the autism community. Refreshments, activities for children and teens, and a chance to shape future programs will be the focus of this event. Please contact Katherine Weadley at, or call 303-651-8480 for more information.
