Celebrating the Americans with Disabilities Act

On Saturday July 28, 2018, the Bloomington community will celebrate the 28th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. MCPL's own Chris Jackson will be helping run the wheelchair course, just one of many skill challenges and activities planned for the day.

Jackson chairs the Accessability Committee for the Local Council for Community Accessibility, the organization hosting the event. He hopes that participants in the wheelchair course will experience what it is like to navigate the world around them while using the chair.
