Get your ADA questions answered at our next SNAILS meeting!

Our summer meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, August 30 at Deerfield Public Library. Please plan to arrive close to 9:00am for morning treats and networking. Our business will begin promptly at 9:30am.

Robin Jones
This month, we have the privilege of hearing from Robin Jones, the Director of the Great Lakes ADA Center. Robin will be giving an overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act as it relates to local government (i.e. public libraries). Her presentation is jam-packed with legal and practical information, so this is a great meeting for library staff at all service levels to attend.

In order to the make the presentation as relevant as possible, Robin would like to know what type of scenarios you experience when serving (or not being equipped to serve) people with disabilities. If you ever wanted to ask an ADA expert a question about legal requirements, best practices, or "what to do if..." this is your chance!

Even if you can't make it to the meeting, please share your experiences/questions in the comments below or email us using the form at the left.

We'll record Robin's presentation and post it on our SNAILS YouTube Channel so that everyone can learn from her talk. It's quite possible that her presentation will inspire you to change a library policy, implement a new service, or develop a new program!
