Outreach to the Hearing Impaired project

The Burke County Public Library will partner with the Burke County School System and the North Carolina School for the Deaf to provide children who are deaf or hard of hearing with an opportunity to come to the library for specially designed storytime programs. There are currently no programs available for these children in the community, and the project will offer caregivers information on academic achievement, social development, read-aloud strategies and literature selection.
