You Can Help Build Our Library

LAST is looking for book and stim toy donations for our What About Us Neurodiversity Lending Library

A black, red and purple, woodcut style poster reads: The What About Us Neurodiversity Lending Library. Under the title a grouping of four people are reading books. One woman is in a wheelchair, another person is flapping their left hand while reading excitedly. They are accompanied by a service dog.

What the Library Will Be:

The What About Us Lending Library will offer books and stim toys that can be checked out weekly by members of the local Autistic community. It will be open on Monday Nights at Knollwood Park Public School, from 6:00-8:00 pm. A book list will be posted on the website once the Library is up and running.

The books available will include reference books, books on self advocacy and neurodiversity and fiction books, with a particular emphasis on positive Autistic representation.

We have a particularly urgent need for sex education and mental health resources in our community.
