Kelsey (age 7) is a regular customer here at Richmond Public Library. She is visually impaired, and her mom has added construction paper over the title and sticker boxes to give it a raised texture, and Kelsey is using her braille machine to add the braille to the title boxes.
It’s a little bit tricky to see in the photo, but it was such a cool idea I wanted to share it with everyone.
My name is Megan Cole, and I’m the teen services co-ordinator at the Powell River Public Library. We recently moved into a new library space, which is three times bigger than our previous one. Needless to say we’ve seen a lot of excitement from our community, particularly teens and the tweens Grades 4 – 6. I’m looking for programming ideas for our tweens Grades 4 -6. Like many libraries, especially in the summer, we see a lot of kids whose parents send their kids to the library to spend the day, which always means they try to camp out at the computers. We’re hoping to develop some on going programming to serve them. I’m wondering what other libraries are doing around this.
