Experience Disabilities: Gordon College’s Library Closing
The week before Beyond Disabilities Week, we received permission from our college president, public safety, and the director of the library to close the entrance of our public library.
We used the library closing as a way for students to experience *on a small scale* what it is like to live with a disability on a daily basis. At Gordon, students with physical disabilities must walk around the side of the library to enter since we do not have a ramp at the front entrance.
Signs covered the front entrance of the library, which directed all students to use the accessible entrance (found at the side of the building).
