In 2013, BB&T selected The Arc of Wilson County as one of the recipients of their Lighthouse Projects. The Arc requested a lending library for sharing information with families and any interested parties about people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The library has over 140 books and a few DVDs on several topics including: ADD & ADHD, Autism and Asperger's, Down Syndrome, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) & Special Education, Shaken Baby Syndrome, Special Needs, and other disabilities. The lending library is completely free and open to the public.
The Arc of Wilson wants to continue growing its resources, but we need your help. If you have any books that you no longer use that would be helpful to another family, feel free to donate them to our lending library. Alternatively, The Arc of Wilson County has a wish list of books that can be purchased online at Amazon Smile. Click here to view the wish list. Make sure you shop using smile.amazon.com and register "Arc of Wilson County, Inc" as your charity of choice.
