Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month

This month we celebrate Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Classes are over and finals are upon us, but it’s never to soon to think about your summer reading. The library has lots of options.  Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning is one that is available in print and as an e-book, so those with active Midd id’s can login remotely to read it (and seniors, you can until your midd login expires).

April is Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness month. The Middlebury Library has a number of related titles and a dedicated Disability Studies Guide to get you started.  Read Fearlessly Different: an autistic actor’s journey to Broadway’s biggest stage (available in print, ebook, and audiobook). Want to watch a film?  Try Kanopy, our streaming service, and search keyword autism. Take time this month to explore the wealth of resources available from our collections or at your fingertips online.

These works include fiction, non-fiction, film, recommended podcasts, and more. Starting the week of February 14th, the physical display can be found in the Atrium of the Davis Family Library.
