Braille and large-print textbook order deadline Jan. 15

Alternative format textbook orders for fall 2014 must be submitted by Jan. 15 to the South Dakota State Library’s Braille & Talking Book Program. For orders submitted past this date, the library cannot guarantee delivery in time for the first day of classes.

School districts pay for textbooks that need to be produced. Textbooks available for lending from the State Library collection will be sent free of charge on a first come, first served basis.

Districts must mail one print copy of each book that needs to be enlarged or brailled (two copies should be sent if two students will use the same book).
