Accessible Reading Record Example

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.
