Our Lending Library

IMG_20160504_083741We are passionate about supporting people to build lives of richness, community, and inclusion.

As part of our Facilitator’s Network of Waterloo Region community of practice, we are collecting resources relevant to person-directed planning and independent facilitation.

These resources are available for community use in our lending library, housed in the reception area of the Centre for Autism in The Family Centre (65 Hanson Ave., Kitchener).

Borrowing resources is simple – find the book or resource you are interested in, record your name and contact information on the card clipped to the book, and place it in the card box under the first letter of your last name.

Find the resource useful? Why not write up a review or share ideas that came to you while using it, and attach it to the inside of the book for others to enjoy?
