How can you tell what your money is when you can’t see it? You sure don’t want to put a twenty dollar bill into the soda machine! Coins are easy to identify tactually. Paper money, not so much. So, let’s learn how to identify paper currency. We can fold it in certain ways. But how do we know for sure what bill is what when a clerk at a store hands us change for $8?

There are apps that can be used on an iPhone to identify paper money. There is also an IBill, a pocket-sized device which can be used to identify paper currency. The U.S. Treasury distributes the IBill free to blind Americans for purposes of accessibility. They are distributed by the Colorado Talking Book Library, and for this Learning Box, you can get your free device! So, during this month’s activity, students will learn how to use the IBill device to identify your cash!.

Registration deadline is Sunday, May 15. To receive your free IBill from the Colorado Talking Book Library, we will contact you to gather the information they require for you to qualify. Understandably everyone can get just one free IBill.

This educational activity is developed and presented by The National Federation of the Blind of Colorado, the Colorado Center for the Blind, and the American Action Fund for Blind Children and Adults.
