National Autism Awareness Month

In recognition of World Autism Awareness Day, Tuesday, April 2, LSC Tomball Community Library will “Light it up Blue“.

The staff will be wearing blue and if you are wearing blue too you will receive one of our hand-crafted blue puzzle pieces while supplies last. The puzzle piece was first created in 1963 and is the international symbol for autism. The National Autism Society notes that the puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of the autism spectrum. Join us this month as we acknowledge and raise awareness about autism. Be sure to come see the beautiful blue lights around the first floor Reference Desk!
