One of my dreams has been to have my own Library for Autistic Families. This weekend I got a little closer to my goal. I received a call earlier this week from the woman who runs Farmer's Market and she said I could set up my booth there. I set up an Autism Resource table for families to gather information. There are pamphlets on local Therapists, Services, IEP Attorney's, etc. I also have a monthly Calendar of Local Events. My second table is a Mini-Library. Filled with Autisic Authors, non-Fiction, Fiction, Self Help, Dietary, and Children's Books. The families fill our a Library Card and bring me the book back within two weeks. If they need it longer they can call me for an extension. The resource table and Library are FREE! I sell bags and backpacks with my Logo on it for an inexpensive price. I am hoping to start selling art, and jewelry made by persons and family affected by Autism. I am also working on a resource table of business cards and flyers of local businesses and Non-profits that support Autism In Long Beach.
"Despite what we've been taught, we don't have to be rich, famous or distinguished to make our dreams come true." ~Sharon Cook & Graciela Sholander
Whatever we are waiting for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of simple abundance - it will surely come to us, but only when we are ready to receive it with an open and grateful heart.
Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers. ~Charles W. Eliot
"Most successful men have not achieved their distinction by having some new talent or opportunity presented to them. They have developed the opportunity that was at hand."
