>>American Printing House for the Blind & Dolly 
>>Parton's Imagination Library Partnership
>>Audio BooksThe American Printing House for the 
>>Blind (APH) and the Dollywood Foundation began 
>>an exciting partnership in the summer of 2011 
>>that expands Dolly Parton's Imagination Library 
>>(DPIL) program to provide young blind and 
>>visually impaired children with accessible 
>>books in audio and print/braille formats!
>>Thanks to the APH/Dolly Parton's Imagination 
>>Library Partnership and the support of Penguin 
>>Group USA, the Accessible Books website was 
>>established at APH. It offers a growing 
>>collection of 
>>files of Imagination Library books available as free downloads.
>>NEW! Print/Braille Books
>>Now — FREE Print/Braille Books from APH and the 
>>Dolly Parton Imaggination Library Partnership!
>>Now, selected Imagination Library Books are 
>>also available, free-of-charge, in 
>>print/braille format. By enrolling in the 
>>Partners Print/Braille Book Program, a child is 
>>able to receive five free print/braille books 
>>each year until reaching his/her 6th birthday.
>>APH selects the titles from the current 
>>year’s DPIL booklist—those most appropriate 
>>for a child with a visual impairment. 
>>Print/braille versions are mailed directly to the child’s family.
>>Is your child a potential braille reader under 
>>six years of age? If yes, APPLY now for the 
>>Partners Print/Braille Book Program! Books are 
>>limited and enrollment is on a first come/first 
>>serve basis. 
>>and submit our application form here.
>>This free service is made possible by generous 
>>donors from across the country. APH welcomes 
>>contributions to help defray initial costs and 
>>expand the program so that all blind and 
>>visually impaired children will benefit from 
>>this wonderful service. <http://www.aph.org/donate/>Donate Now!
>>APH President Tuck Tinsley: "We're excited! 
>>What an honor it is to partner with someone 
>>like Dolly who is as passionate about literacy 
>>as we are. This relationship between The 
>>Imagination Library and the American Printing 
>>House for the Blind means that blind and 
>>visually impaired preschoolers can now be more 
>>involved in the experience of reading with their parents."
>>Ms. Parton: "Any credit I get is really due to 
>>the hard work and fine reputation of all of 
>>those who partner with us to bring the love of 
>>reading to so many kids. I am just thrilled we 
>>can work together to bring this same joy to all 
>>children who may have trouble seeing but have 
>>no trouble in believing that all of their dreams can come true."
