The programs consist of a Braille literacy contest for students in kindergarten through twelfth grade, as well as a pre-literacy program for children not yet reading. The first contest encourages participants to read as many Braille pages as possible in literature outside of their normal school requirements, for a period of two months. The pre-literacy program encourages parents to read with their child using print-Braille storybooks.
The Kenneth Jernigan Library for Blind Children is dedicated to the reading pleasure and education of blind children and young adults. The library is run by volunteers and unlike the traditional ‘walk in’ library distributes Braille books entirely by mail. Applicants may have books sent either to their home or school according to their preference.
This program provides blind children a free Braille book every month from a popular children’s reading series. The books are for the children to keep and collect for as long as they want them.
