Jan. 15, 2011, is the deadline for schools to order textbooks in alternative formats for the 2011-12 school year. Why so early? Producing textbooks in large print and Braille can take anywhere from six weeks to nine months.
Although it will accept textbook orders at any time, the South Dakota State Library can only guarantee that orders placed by Jan. 15 will be delivered by the beginning of the following school year.
