Bards in the Bog 2021 - Hi VIS

Hi VIS logo

To mark Hi VIS fortnight, we selected six poems from the Library's Bards in the Bog project 2020.  Three poems will be recorded with the Talking Newspaper edition on 11/06 and 18/06.  In addition, the recordings will also be included with the June round up of Shetland Times Extra features on the Talking Newspaper.  The poems were written by local poets and will be displayed in various public conveniences throughout Shetland for people to enjoy as they go about their business. Six winning Hi VIS poems

Hi VIS fortnight provides an opportunity to raise the profile of accessible library services, collections, and activities, and to connect people with a vision or print impairment to these resources.  More information about the Talking Newspaper, a link to the current edition, and other resources for those with vision impairment can be found on the library website under “Vision services”.
