​Happening Now:​

Transcribing the Sky
July 27th & August 16th

3:00 PM​

Josh Urban returns to LBPD to host a conversation with youth ages 7- 17 years about the James Webb Space Telescope’s most recent observations. Share your perspective on the best way to communicate the telescope’s findings to the blind and low-vision communities. Should the pictures be converted to sound? Should they produce 3D printed graphics? Your thoughts are important to us. Part one of this two-part event is on July 27th at 3:00 PM, with the follow-up session occurring on August 16th. Register by July 25th using the following link:​. After registration, you will receive confirmation information either by email or phone.​

Visit with a Whale

August 13th

10:00 AM to 2:00 PM

​Would you like to visit with a 40-foot humpback whale? Come, climb inside and get to know this fascinating creature! The Maryland State Library for the Blind and Print Disabled will have a special visit from the Whale Mobile for all our summer readers on August 13th. It is an event you won’t want to miss. The program will be held on August 13th from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the National Federation of the Blind in Baltimore. Registration will be required for attendance, and a parent or guardian must accompany all minors.

​Important Information for the program:

​Participants must preregister.  While children do not need to be accompanied by an adult to go in the whale as part of the program, the adults must remain and stay close by.  No child will be accepted without a parent/guardian.  There will be no more than 20 participants at a time for each time slot.  The program is intended for children ages 5 years old and older.
