The Braille and Talking Book Library and the Michigan Department of Education- Low Incidence Outreach, in collaboration with the Library of Michigan, is offering public libraries in Michigan the opportunity to host Braille Enhanced StoryWalk at their libraries!

This is a great opportunity for any public library that wants to do a StoryWalk at their location or collaborate with a local park.
