What is the LBPD Summer Reading Program?

Shy away from the summer sun’s intense rays by turning the pages of a great book! The Library for the Blind and Print Disabled (LBPD) has summer reading program options for both children and adults, and both programs offer raffle drawings for prizes at the conclusion of the summer! Programs are only for LBPD patrons. If you are not currently a library patron, please reach out to the Bridges Helpdesk and we will help get you connected with thousands of titles in accessible formats.
