As the school year ends, MDE-LIO encourages teachers to return unused American Printing House for the Blind (APH) products so they can be available for others to borrow. Due to the high value of APH products, we would like to remind teachers to properly package every return. Please review the following guidelines:

  • Double-check the items you are returning and omit any non-APH products. APH products are clearly identified with the APH name and logo.
  • Ensure that all parts, guidebooks, and power cords are included in the return. Quality and complete kits are vital to maintaining loaned APH materials.
  • Pack the materials, especially books, into smaller boxes. Heavier boxes are easily damaged during shipping and are difficult to lift.
  • When returning a high-ticket item, please email msdb-imc@michigan.gov to receive a pre-paid UPS return label. Please let us know if the item is broken.
