The voters served by the Goshen Public Library and Historical Society have an important choice to make on December 2, one that will further enrich our community and promote inclusion for all of its members. Goshen’s current library was built 100 years ago, prior to the passing of the Americans with Disabilities Act; as a result, this building is not handicap accessible and, therefore, does not meet the needs of our community.
Inspire has provided services for people with disabilities and their families right here in Orange County for 65 years. On behalf of the children and adults served at Inspire, I urge you to consider voting “yes” for a new, handicap accessible library on December 2. Your vote will allow all members of the community the equal access to the resources and services of the library that they deserve.
Since its passing 25 years ago, the Americans with Disabilities Act has opened doors for Americans with disabilities. Because of the ADA, these individuals can lead fuller lives – they are able to access public buildings, contribute to their community, earn a living, and more. However, the full potential of the ADA can only be reached if we continue to increase these efforts. This starts with you.
