The Friends of Queen Anne’s County Library recently donated more than 150 used children’s books to help establish a new library at the McArdle Center for Early Autism Intervention in Stevensville. The McArdle Center has developed programming to work with children even before they become diagnosed on the autism spectrum, from early detection of signs of autism to providing therapy and education in a year round setting best prepares these children to live full and meaningful lives.
Books contributed by the Friends will be used by McArdle’s students, aged 2-8 years. The founder of the center, Emily McArdle, praised the Friends of the Library for the contribution: “Thank you so much for this generous donation. We will put the books to wonderful use in our new library.”
