Trenton, NJ, July 16, 2015 – Children and teen readers will explore all things heroic this summer as the New Jersey State Library’s Talking Book and Braille Center (TBBC) presents “Every Hero Has a Story” during their summer library program. For six weeks, everyone who signs up receives a package in the mail full of activities, booklists, crafts and recipes. Fun toys and other prizes are also sent, thanks to the generosity of the Friends of The New Jersey Library for the Blind and Handicapped (NJLBH) group.

 

The 2015 Summer Program is free of charge and open to all children and teens who are members of TBBC. The State Library’s TBBC serves New Jersey residents who cannot read standard print or who cannot hold a book or turn the pages of a book because of a physical impairment, a reading disability or a visual impairment. TBBC provides home-delivered services at no cost to the user, as a regional library of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), a division of the U.S. Library of Congress.
