Hi VIS Fortnight – Celebrating the word in all its formats

‘Make A Noise In Libraries’ is changing into ‘Hi VIS’ from this year.

The celebration of accessible library services and alternative formats will be taking place during the first two weeks of June, as before (1-14th June 2020); it will still be aiming to champion and raise awareness of the range of library services and activities that are available to visually impaired people to access; it’s just that the name is shifting to better reflect the core purpose of the fortnight.


Hi VIS 2020 digital resources

To help celebrate Hi VIS fortnight (1-14 June 2020), we have produced a set of digital resources that you can use in your promotional activities. With the current coronavirus pandemic, we appreciate that people are going to be somewhat constrained in their event planning. However, it is still important that we champion accessible library services, alternative formats, and service providers that deliver reading to those for whom standard print is not an option. Hopefully, through digital and social media channels, we can all still spread positive messages and information, and raise awareness during Hi VIS fortnight – Go on; make a noise!
