Braille Institute - Anaheim Center Library recently gave some of our students the chance to create their own zines by offering a class on the topic that guided students as they created their own. The class put its own spin on the publication by having the students create audio zines to channel their powerful storytelling.
Bestselling authors give us their favorite books which are available as books for vision impaired during Braille Institute's Library Month promotion and National Library Week.
As a part of the National Library Service, Braille Institute provides free access to library services in the form of more than 100,000 titles of braille books and audio books to Southern California patrons who are visually impaired.
One of the best things about our BARD audio books for visually impaired service is the possibility of listening to long series’ that allow book lovers to explore stories and characters in depth over a long period of time.
While we hope you enjoy our BARD digital service as much as possible and explore the massive amount of available audio books for visually impaired titles it offers, we also thought it would be great to share with you some other resources you can take advantage of at this time. Each public library that serves the ten counties in Southern California offers digital services as well.
Braille Institute has a limited number of free one-year Bookshare licenses remaining to provide books for vision impaired, but they are going away soon!
Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) is a service from the National Library Service and Braille Institute that allows patrons to digitally download both braille titles and audio books for vision impaired from an extensive collection of titles.
The 2020 Summer Reading Program for Adults at the Braille Institute Library is right around the corner!
