  • Join us at the library for a truly unique musical performance!

His work with The Ability Center has won numerous community and construction awards and he also serves on a handful of DEI+A committees at a city, county, and state level. But, Damian is most proud to identify as a survivor, social entrepreneur, adaptive athlete, and father of three. Damian Buchman humbly finds himself as an inspiration to both those with and without disabilities.
