Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month - PDF and Yuma County Libraries team up with Yuma Bev

I ordered pamphlets from the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF), then I stopped and talked to Iris, the manager of my local branch Library about setting up a display for Parkinson's Disease Awareness Month.  She loved the idea and she suggested that I talk to someone at the Main Library.  I talked to the Main Library and they said they'd be happy to do something county wide, so I gave all the pamphlets to Iris and she would take them to the next managers meeting.


WOW!
Yesterday I went in to my local branch and Iris had set up a beautiful display. I had my camera with me and I snapped a few pictures.

Later in the day, I stopped in to the Main Library and they had set up a wonderful display as well.

It was easy, I ordered materials and then asked my library to set up a display. I bet you could get your local library to do the same thing.
