Houston VisionWalk — Saturday, October 20th

On Saturday, October 20th from 8:30 am – 12 pm, TBP Reader’s Advisory Librarian Shannon will attend the Houston VisionWalk at Discovery Green Park. The Houston VisionWalk supports the Foundation Fighting Blindness, whose mission is to “drive the research that will provide preventions, treatments and cures for people affected by retinitis pigmentosa (RP), macular degeneration, Usher syndrome, and the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases.”

Registration for the Houston VisionWalk is at 9:00 am and the walk starts at 10:00. There will be music, refreshments, and kids’ activities after the walk.

Shannon will staff a booth at the walk to tell people about the Talking Book Program, demonstrate the DTBM, and talk about BARD. Please stop by to say “hello”. Shannon would love to meet some of our library users!
