Nickerson Collection

The Daniel R. Nickerson Foundation provides funding for the development of a special collection of materials on learning and developmental disabilities at the Bedford Free Public Library. The Foundation’s gift has allowed the Library to acquire many of the latest and most relevant materials on this topic and to become a major regional resource within Eastern Massachusetts.

In honor of their son Daniel, the Nickerson family, along with the Bedford Free Public Library, has established a collection of materials aimed at helping families cope with the challenges of learning and developmental disabilities including autism and its related disorders, Down syndrome, Tourette’s syndrome, Attention Deficit Disorder, and ADHD.
