The Lighthouse Guild and Bookshare announce an exciting new student literacy program. Eligible students with visual impairments or print disabilities will have access to more than 500,000 titles through Bookshare, an e-reading application designed for users with visual impairments called Spotlight Gateway, and a free iPad.
- An ophthalmologist must certify that the student has a visual impairment or print disability; all students can then enroll for a free Bookshare membership and the Spotlight Gateway app.
- For a limited time, students who demonstrate a financial need by qualifying for Federal School Lunch Assistance Program or Medicaid, will likely be eligible to receive an iPad at no cost.
