American Printing House (APH) for the Blind and the Dollywood Foundation have an exciting partnership that expands Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) program http://bit.ly/1CIwP4O by providing young children who are blind and visually impaired with accessible books in print/braille and audio formats.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a part of the Dollywood Foundation, partners with local sponsors in 1,300 communities in 3 countries to provide a quality, age appropriate book each month to preschool children enrolled in the program.
Print, Braille Books, Audio
APH/Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Partnership with the support of Penguin Group USA, offers a growing collection of audio files of Imagination Library books available as free downloads. See the selected Imagination Library audio books for the month of February. http://bit.ly/1yX4NQM
Books are available free-of-charge in print/braille format. APH selects the titles from the current year’s DPIL booklist—those most appropriate for a child with a visual impairment.
Print/braille versions are mailed directly to the child’s family. When you enroll in the Braille Tales Print/Braille Book Program, your family can receive six free print/braille books each year until the child reaches his/her 6th birthday. There are eligibility requirements for the program. You or your child must meet the definition of blindness.
