Book lovers who are visually impaired or have difficulty holding or reading standard print materials will want to come to Crowell Library on Friday, March 2 at 10:30 a.m. to learn about the Braille Institute’s free services. Attendees will have an opportunity to sign up for a one-year free license for Bookshare (www.bookshare.org), an online accessible library with over 550,000 titles in audio and Braille. As part of a statewide pilot program, Braille Institute is providing free access to Bookshare for eligible library patrons. Bookshare users will also receive free training, in-person or over the telephone. Braille Institute staff will lead hands-on demonstrations and explain the resources available to anyone with visual impairments or movement disorders. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore mainstream devices, such as smartphones and tablets, as well as special adaptive technology designed to help continue one’s lifelong love of reading and learning.

Braille Institute is a nonprofit organization headquartered in Los Angeles whose mission is to eliminate barriers to a fulfilling life caused by blindness and severe sight loss. Each year, Braille Institute serves tens of thousands of people at six centers throughout Southern California. Braille Institute provides an environment of hope and encouragement through integrated educational, social, and recreational programs. The Braille staff and volunteers understand that losing one’s vision can be scary, and they believe that it is not the end of independence, but a new way of living.

Many who are blind or visually impaired—or who have reading or other physical disabilities—often cannot use printed materials, depriving them of reading materials that most take for granted. Braille Institute's Library Services—the Southern California branch of the National Library Service (NLS), a network coordinated by the Library of Congress—has solved this problem for more than six decades by providing free books for the blind and visually impaired. Come to Crowell Library on Friday, March 2 at 10:30 a.m. and learn all about these fabulous services.
