The Story

The mission of the Ed Wiley Autism Acceptance Library is to promote understanding, acceptance and inclusion for Autistic people. Our organization is dedicated to the ideas of neurodiversity, social justice, Autistic/Disabled Pride and disability rights. The lending materials we offer will reflect the wide and diverse spectrum of autism and intersectional identities. We are working toward building an inclusive community and providing relevant resources and information for Autistic people, our families, friends and allies.

We are getting ready for a great 2018!  

This year, we are making plans for another Autism Acceptance Month event with Autism Women's Network at our local community center!

We are in desperate need of a storage system for our growing collection of books!  I travel back and forth with them and I just have a small space to store all of our books.  As I am looking into ways to make the travel process easier and to make sure the books are safely stored in a dry space, I have had to stop ordering books for a while.  We really need to get the funds together to purchase easily portable storage containers so that we can keep building our library and bringing it to events, appointments and at our regular dates at the local community center!

Perhaps our biggest update is that we are working on a children's book featuring the neurodivergent narwhals.  It is self published and we have raised most of the funds to print the book, but as it is self written, edited and illustrated, there have been a few snags that have taken more time and money than was expected.   We can't wait to share the book with the world and your donations can make that happen much faster!   


Thanks again for all of your support!

We will be adding more books and materials to our wishlist very soon and are seeking donations to help get them into the library.  And even more exciting is that we are working on a neurodivergent narwhals book  (more information on that coming soon)!   Thank you for helping us to build our library and create new materials and resources that reflect autism acceptance and that celebrate neurodiversity in our community.

We just did a huge order of printable resources for some upcoming events the library is participating in.  We will now have copies of "What is Autism?, in Plain Language by Dani Alexis Ryskamp autisticacademic.com in addition to the other writings of #actuallyautsitic adults that are available at the library!  

We are looking for more donations to purchase several upcoming books from Autonomous Press, more books of poetry and fiction by autistic and other disabled adults, films and possibly an event tent that we can use at festivals and outdoor events to bring resources and information on autism acceptance and neurodiversity to our community!  
If you can donate or share our fundraiser,  it is greatly appreciated!

We are a small community organization and every cent that is donated to us and every share of this fundraiser counts!  Thank you!
