Braille Enhanced StoryWalk®: The Thing about Bees: A Love Letter by Shabazz Larkin / Shared with permission from READERS to EATERS. The Thing about Bees: A Love Letter will be on display with Braille enhancement, so you can share a story as you wander and take in all the garden has to offer. The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, Vermont and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service mark owned by Ms. Ferguson. Patrons who are unable to read standard print due to visual impairment, physical disability, or reading disability can request an audio accommodation, or if you have any other accessibility needs please reach out to leap@spl.org or by calling 206-615-1380.

All of our amazing partners will be onsite with fun activities like button making, Braille exploration with Washington Talking Book and Braille Library, and sensory friendly music fun with Music Center of the Northwest. Special thanks to all our partners who made this event possible!
