MC Library Celebrates Disability Employment Awareness

We celebrate the achievements and contributions of people with disabilities to all parts of our culture. Every year, October is recognized as National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), a time to highlight and advocate for people with disabilities in the workplace. Montgomery College Library is committed to providing equal access for all users and observing the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
