Whether you have ten minutes or ten hours, we would love to have you participate in Disability Book Week! No matter what your involvement level is, there is something for everyone!
Ask your local library to participate in Disability Book Week by setting up a display of disability inclusive books.
Ask your school library to participate in Disability Book Week by setting up a display of disability inclusive books or requesting an author with a disability to come and speak.
See if your mayor will officially proclaim April 23-29 as Disability Book Week in your city. Go to the Resources section of our website and download the proclamation template. Fill in your mayor's name and your city at the bottom and copy/ paste it into your mayor's online submission form for proclamations. It is as easy as that!
Borrow or buy one of the recommended books on our list (or ask a librarian for a suggestion!) that features a character with a disability and read it. Doing so will open your eyes to a whole new world and way of experiencing life.
Being an author can be a struggle, and we all like to hear what we did well! After reading their book, show your support by leaving a positive review for one of our authors with a disability or for one of the authors who writes about disabilities.
Use social media to get the word out and challenge others to participate as well. Follow Disability Book Week and an inclusive author, and post about an inclusive book you have recently read.
