Recyclo-gami

by Laurie Goldrich Wolf

What can you make out of your old bits of paper, leftover pieces of yarn, or not-so-brand-new cartons and containers? Craft your own purse out of playing cards, whip up a scrapbook made of cereal boxes, or a dollhouse from an empty juice carton! Tweens and teens can start crafting using the easy to follow instructions and photographic directions the smart way. All crafts are made out of materials that many of us find just lying around the house or sitting on the curb waiting to be tossed in a landfill. Overpriced décor, fashion, and gifts are out, and recyclable crafts are in!

Select your format based upon: 1) how you want to read your book, and 2) compatibility with your reading tool. To learn more about using Bookshare with your device, visit the "Using Bookshare" page in the Help Center.

Here is an overview of the specialized formats that Bookshare offers its members with links that go to the Help Center for more information.

  • Bookshare Web Reader - a customized reading tool for Bookshare members offering all the features of DAISY with a single click of the "Read Now" link.
  • DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System) - a digital book file format. DAISY books from Bookshare are DAISY 3.0 text files that work with just about every type of access technology that reads text. Books that contain images will have the download option of ‘DAISY Text with Images’.
  • BRF (Braille Refreshable Format) - digital Braille for use with refreshable Braille devices and Braille embossers.
  • MP3 (Mpeg audio layer 3) - Provides audio only with no text. These books are created with a text-to-speech engine and spoken by Kendra, a high quality synthetic voice from Ivona. Any device that supports MP3 playback is compatible.
  • DAISY Audio - Similar to the Daisy 3.0 option above; however, this option uses MP3 files created with our text-to-speech engine that utilizes Ivona's Kendra voice. This format will work with Daisy Audio compatible players such as Victor Reader Stream and Read2Go.
