Library > Talking Book & Braille Library > TBBL: Summer Reading Program TBBL: Summer Reading Program

The library will be hosting a summer reading program from June 2nd-August 4th. We will be exploring science themes with “Fizz Boom Read!” for ages 4 to 13 and “Spark a Reaction” for ages 14 to 18. Any Braille, digital audio, or large print book borrowed or downloaded from the library will count toward a participant’s total. In addition to borrowing physical copies of books, participants can download digital audio books from the BARD website at http://nlsbard.loc.gov/ and play them on their talking book player, or download them directly to an iPod, iPhone, or iPod Touch using the BARD Mobile app, available from the iTunes app store. Students with refreshable Braille displays can also download Braille books through either the app or the website. To learn more about BARD and BARD Mobile, please visit http://in.gov/library/3811.htm.

Prizes will be awarded based on number of books read. This year, for the first time, we will be awarding 3 iPod Touches to our top readers.  All books borrowed from the library must be returned before prizes can be awarded.   Anyone between the ages of 4 and 18 who is unable to read standard print due to a visual impairment, physical disability, or organic reading disability is eligible for the summer reading program. Please complete and return the application by Wednesday, May 28th. Applications that are a bit late in getting to us will still be eligible. Please direct any questions regarding the summer reading program to Laura Williams at lawilliams1@library.in.gov or 317-232-0609.
