Description

The Oklahoma Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped is a free library service for Oklahomans of all ages who are unable to read or hold regular print materials as a result of a visual, physical, perceptual or reading disability. The OLBPH provides books and magazines in braille and audio formats, instantly downloadable or mailed directly to patrons' doors at no cost. The OLBPH's goal is to provide reading materials in accessible formats so that all Oklahomans may read.

The OLBPH's Accessible Instructional Materials Center provides free educational and instructional materials to children birth through grade 12 who qualify for OLBPH services and who attend public and private schools in Oklahoma, or receive services from Sooner Start. The AIM Center provides braille and large print textbooks for all grade levels and subjects. The AIM Center has assistive technology available for checkout, including large-screen Chromebooks, video magnifiers, talking calculators and electronic braille readers. The AIM Center also provides early learning tools, including tactile shape-sorting toys, braille building blocks, and many other developmental toys and games. The AIM Center has books with both braille and print text that allow parents and teachers to share reading experiences with children who are visually impaired.
