Library Hosting Deaf Awareness Month Events

In support of Deaf Awareness Month, the Boynton Beach City Library and the City’s Office of Accessibility are hosting two free events in Downtown Boynton. 

On Thursday, September 23 from 5:30-7:30 pm, celebrate International Day of Sign Languages by learning some American Sign Language (ASL) and hearing from speakers Janice Pickron, a City ITS Web Design Coordinator, and Shivon Schmitz, a local artist who has led Silent Painting Classes for the City Recreation and Parks Department. They will share their unique experiences of being deaf and inform attendees on the ways in which the City supports accessibility for all employees and residents.  Register online. Space is limited.

On Wednesday, September 29 from 10-10:30 am, join retired teacher Susan Robbins by the Banyan Tree outside City Hall for a Signing Storytime. She will read a popular children's book using ASL. Susan Robbins taught Deaf students from K-12 for 30 years. No pre-registration is required. Drop ins are welcome.
