Our reader reports that the collection "was originally established by the Waterloo Wellington Autism Services. The library holds 54 titles (of over 800) that have been published in 2009 or 2010. This specialized health collection has just been moved from the Main Library (major renovations) to the Grand River Stanley Park branch." More information available here.
I was at KPL in 2009 - more general photos are here, in my Libraries, bookstores, and book-related set.
The readers' advisor in me can't click "publish" without recommending the following excellent novels featuring characters with autism spectrum disorders:
- Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork
- The Way Things Look to Me by Roopa Farooki
- The Bone People by Keri Hulme
- Rules by Cynthia Lord
- The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon
