Through the Maryland State Library, USMAI libraries have access to live webinars offered by Ryan Dowd's Homeless Training Institute. Staff at USMAI libraries also have access to recorded webinars and the Librarian's Guide to Homelessness through Niche Academy.
The next 1-hour webinar, "Service Animals: Your Obligations Under the ADA," will be held on Thursday, March 11 at 2:00 p.m.
Some of the issues covered:
- Which types of animals are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?
- What are the two questions you can legally ask? (Yes, there are only two!)
- Can you legally exclude a service animal if it growls, poops, sets off someone's allergies, or scares someone with a phobia?
