My Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group Volunteers & I plan on having regular BC ADHD Awareness weeks annually. Since we’ve had such a great response by you BC librarians and bookstore owners, we’re doing the ADHD book displays again this year October 12th-18th, 2015. Details will be coming soon.
What we’ve done so far
In 2012 we had 29 libraries & bookstores in 8 cities doing BC ADHD Awareness week book displays. In 2013 we more than doubled the number of libraries and bookstores and nearly tripled the number of cities. 78 and 23 cities.
Thanks to your participation, in 2013 we had more ADHD Awareness week events in BC than all the other provinces in Canada combined & more than any state in the US.
And in 2014 we had 122 libraries and bookstores in 68 BC cities doing BC ADHD Awareness week book displays.
Here are some resources to make it easier for you BC Librarians and bookstore owners to create BC ADHD Awareness week book displays in your libraries.
It includes downloadable posters and brochures that you can print plus web and printing versions of our poster. When we have our 2015 poster updated it will be listed here.
Please take a photo of your display and put it on your twitter and facebook accounts, hashtag them #ADHDAwareness and #BC and send it us, we’ll retweet and facebook them and post them on our page of library ADHD book display photos. See 2014’s photos. See 2014 map of locations.
If there is anything that would help you create an BC ADHD Awareness Week display in your Library or bookstore that’s not listed here please let me know in the comments. Thank you.
