Celebrate with Crafts- World Braille Day

Welcome the new year at the library as we celebrate World Braille Day. At the library, we will be hosting activities and crafts to help us connect with the blind and visually impaired community. We will “write” our names in Braille, learn from braille and traditional book displays, and have other activities to use our senses, beyond sight, to understand our world. 

World Braille Day on January 4 is celebrated to honor the birth of Braille’s inventor, Louis Braille. Braille’s gift to the world has brightened the lives of millions of people around the world who are blind or visually impaired, and they benefit from his work every day. The day also acknowledges that those with visual impairments deserve the same standard of human rights as everyone else.
