Deaf Awareness Month

For the month of September, DMC Libraries is celebrating Deaf Awareness Month, which includes International Deaf Awareness Week September 18th – 24th. First observed in September of 1958, Deaf awareness has shaped into a global movement that unites, advocates, and raises awareness of the issues that Deaf individuals face daily.

This year’s theme is “human rights through sign language.” Communication connects communities, and libraries serve a role in connecting communities to one another, and in that spirit, DMC Libraries invites everyone who wishes to learn and grow their knowledge of our Deaf and hard-of-hearing community. If you wish to learn about the resources that provide accessibility available through Del Mar College and beyond, please visit our virtual display
