Make A Noise In Libraries 2019

Thu, 09 May 2019

Make A Noise In Libraries fortnight will take place from June 2 to June 15 2019

The theme of MANIL 2019 is ‘Get Connected’ - We know that the areas of digital access and loneliness have not been far away from policy and project headlines over recent times, and these dual challenges are particularly of interest and relevance to blind and partially sighted people.

We would like, during Make A Noise in Libraries Fortnight, for libraries across the UK to organise events and raise awareness around all that you already do to:

· Enable people with sight loss to engage with reading

· Help people connect to the reading method that best suits them

· Use technology to grow access and the pleasure of reading

· Create opportunities for people with sight loss to get together, and to meet with others near and (possibly) far!
