Connect the Dots 2024 – Light & Shadow

February 17 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm EST

Illustration with green plants, bees, butterflies and logos of: The PNC Foundation, The Dot Experience, and Louisville Free Public Library. Includes the following text: Connect the Dots powered by PNC Foundation. Join us monthly to discover the magic of inclusivity through the power of play!

Embark on an adventure of discovery into the playful world of Connect the Dots—an educational series that turns the history and innovation of blindness and low vision into an exciting adventure for kids! We’re on a mission to make learning a blast and inspire a world of inclusivity so while our building is under renovation, the PNC Foundation is helping us bring our knowledge out into the community. Over the next two years, in partnership with Louisville Free Public Library, Connect the Dots, powered by PNC Foundation, aims to inspire children through an accessibility mindset, encouraging everyone to ponder ways to create a more inclusive world.

Light & Shadow
Often, when we consider blindness, we might picture total darkness. But this is not always accurate. People who are blind or low vision may be able to see some light, colors, and/or shapes. Everyone sees things differently! At this event, families will discover the science of sight, learn from local community members who are blind or low vision about how they see, practice visual attention, and learn about tools like light boxes, magnifiers, and high-contrast text/images which provide access to everyday information.

Location: Main Library – 301 York Street | Louisville, KY 40203
