Wednesday night, they lit up the library to promote autism awareness.

This is what the Rochester Central Library looked like tonight in recognition of world Autism Awareness Day.

It's now one in 68 children who experts say are on the autism spectrum, so the goal Wednesday, was to make sure people know about the disorder, and about the services available to families dealing with it.

Rachel Rosner, a parent of a child with Autism said, "Pretty much everybody knows at least one person with autism. We're not hiding over in a corner anymore, we're your friends, neighbors, family, classmates."

Wednesday's event was put on by the Golisano Children's Hospital and Autism-Up
