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.

A Sweet SRC Story from Castlegar

Hello all : )

I had originally shared this story with Cynthia and was asked to post it here for others to enjoy.

A sweet story from the Castlegar Summer Reading Club:

A girl came upstairs from the Grade 2 to 4 Summer Reading Program with her mom. She already had a book in her hand, but also checked out two picture books. Her mom told me that the daughter takes out one book downstairs at reading club for herself but then wants to come up and pick out a few to take home and read to her brother. I found this story really heartwarming, and a reminder of the great power of Summer Reading Club.

Hope everyone enjoys & is having a great SRC so far!

With cheer,

Laura Zaytsoff
