Books for Kids

Join the Books for Kids Program

Join 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 at least five 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:

1. Complete Library Application:  If your child is not already a library patron, complete an application for service from the Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.

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.
