Sensory Story Kits Available at MLC

The Mississippi Library Commission has some exciting new resources available for patrons! The agency recently added 15 Sensory Story Kits to its collection. The story kits are now available for loan by patrons of MLC and the Mississippi Talking Book Services.

Each story kit contains a story book that has printed text and illustrations accompanied by Braille. The kits also contain items and toys related to the story. The items provide a hands-on way for children to experience books and aid in comprehension and enjoyment of the story. These story kits were created with young children with visual impairments in mind, but children of all ages and capabilities can use tactile and sensory exploration to enhance their understanding and enjoyment of books.

The story kits are currently available to check out and have a loan period of six weeks. To reserve a kit or request a catalog of titles that are available, please contact Erica McCaleb at or 601-432-4116. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
