New books for blind children with the help of our famous friends!

Not only is our library fully operational, we are making new books and resources to add to the library.

Our production room has been very busy, with 4 new Touch See picture books added to the library just before Christmas and new books about the environment, oceans, mental health and well-being for little ones and the Stone Age coming soon.

Our team of postal painters have been busy at home painting the feely pictures. And our famous friends – including Blue Peter’s Richie Driss, comedian Sarah Millican and Martin Clunes – have been lending their voices to the audio guides.
