Library for Our Blind Students

Help me give my students the ability to check out books for pleasure reading just like all of their classmates.

My Students

Our lower level students come to the library with their class every other week to check out books for pleasure reading. One young man in this class is also visually impaired. He sits in a chair quietly while his classmates choose and check out their books.

Our visually impaired students deserve to have books to check out just like everyone else.

They are all working really hard to improve their reading skills, and he is no different. He should be able to utilize our library just like all our other students do.

My Project

Even though we are a high school library, we do our best to make sure there are books available to our students on all levels. The young man who will use these books this year is only a sophomore and will be with us for 3 more years. We have also been told that we will have another visually impaired student next year as a freshman. Our campus has the largest Special Education unit in the district, and all of the visually impaired high school students come to us.

This small order of books in Braille will be just the beginning of a new section of books for our visually impaired students.

We hope to add new books to this section each year so ALL of our students can have a good selection of books for their pleasure reading.
