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

The library will be hosting a summer reading program from June 1st-August 3rd. This year we will be focusing on super hero themes with “Every Hero has a Story” for ages 4-13 and “Unmask!” for ages 14-18. Any Braille, digital audio or large print book borrowed from the library within the time frame 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 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

Prizes will be awarded based on number of books read.  We will again be offering 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. If a student is not currently signed up for the talking books service, applications can be found at  Please direct any questions regarding the summer reading program to Laura Williams at mailto: or 317-232-0609/1-800-622-4970.
