Books for Kids

Bunny with a bookJoin the Books for Kids program designed to provide kids daily access to books throughout the year.  We want to motivate kids to help develop a love of reading, spark the imagination and provide tools for future success in school and beyond.

The program provides Braille, print/Braille, large print and/or audio books each month to participants, including summer months.  It allows for the child to choose the books they want in as many formats as they would like to receive.  The books can be sent to the child’s home, school and/or other addresses.

To join the Books for Kids Program just follow these steps:

Step 1: Become a library patron 

Step 2: Register for the Books for Kids Program

Once we have received these forms, the library will begin sending books to your child.  You can let the library know if there are changes in the books your child would like to receive, how often your child would like to receive books or changes in address information at any time.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact Denise Bean at 515.452.1338 or email denise.bean@blind.state.ia.us.

Happy reading!
