Please join us for the 12th annual Indiana Vision Expo at the Indiana State Library, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Attend information sessions from Dr. Richard Windsor, Dr. Laura Windsor, and more. 

In April 2006, the Indiana State Library hosted its inaugural Indiana Vision Expo for persons with vision loss, their friends and families, service providers, educators, health care professionals, librarians, and other consumers interested in products and services designed to promote independent living. That first year, fifteen vendors exhibited and sold a variety of products from computer software and magnifiers to games and kitchen gadgets, and promoted services available to people with visual impairments.

The Vision Expo has been more successful than anticipated. The Expo now welcomes over 30 vendors and 300 attendees annually, and features multiple presentations on topics relevant to the blind and visually impaired community.

Vision Expo provides an opportunity for people with vision loss, their friends, families, and service providers to learn about the resources available that help promote independent living.  It is also a great opportunity to meet the Talking Book staff as well as fellow Talking Book patrons. 

Admission is free of charge.
