Dog guides partner with people who are blind, giving them the freedom to set their own schedules and to move confidently anywhere they choose to travel. They are also devoted and loving companions. Learn all you ever wanted to know about the amazing dogs from our panel of experts — what they do for their human partners, how they are trained, and what happens when the harness comes off. Free to the public but registration is required. Best for adults and children ages 6 and up.

Saturday, November 16, 1-3 pm
We celebrate 100 years of radio broadcasting by taking you back to a time before computers, before television, when families would gather around the radio to listen to soap operas, spine-chilling dramas, gripping mysteries, and gut-splitting comedies. The first radio broadcast occurred in 1919. One hundred years later, we bring you our own live radio broadcast, with vocals by Talking Book narrators from the APH Sound Studio and sound effects by students at the Kentucky School for the Blind.
THANKSGIVING OPEN HOUSE
Saturday, November 23, 10-3
Looking for something uniquely Louisville to show friends and relatives visiting for Thanksgiving? Bring them to APH’s one-of-a-kind museum! Visitors can write their names in braille, see a book from Helen Keller’s Bible, learn about guide dogs, play games and read books designed for children who are blind, and enjoy many other activities in our award-winning museum. The museum also has on display the first book written by Louis Braille in which he describes his new method for writing with dots. Holiday goodies and spiced cider will be served. Registration is not required. For all ages.
