National Disability Employment Awareness Month and White Cane Awareness Day
The original purpose of National Disability Employment Awareness Month was to educate the public about the issues related to disability and employment, but has grown to include paying tribute to the accomplishments of people with disabilities. The Library of Congress website has a detailed history of National Disability Employment Awareness Month and the Law Library webpage includes the legal history for the celebration of this month.
The Library of Congress includes the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS), which provides free audio, large print, or braille reading materials to those with low vision, blindness, or physical disabilities that prevent them from reading or holding the printed page. I was surprised to learn that these materials also include kids’ books, magazines, foreign language, music materials (including a blog), and eBraille.
