The first event in this series will be on Wednesday, January 9 at 6:30 PM, a panel discussion on the topic 'Invisible Americans' Among Us?: The Rights and Needs of Young Adults with Intellectual Disabilities.” Panelists will include Libby Stone-Sterling, Director of Maine Vocational Rehabilitation; Janice M. Davis, M.A, Hancock County Vocational Rehabilitation Representative; and Annie Sargent, Director of Ellsworth Adult Education. The forum will focus on current available programs and the various challenges having to do with continuing education, job training, and government benefits for young adults with developmental disabilities.
This event is sponsored by the library, and is free and open to everyone. For more information contact the library at 374-5515.
