It’s been more than 200 years since the Braille code was invented and opened up the world of reading to those without sight.
January is Braille Literacy Awareness Month and communities across the country look to connect those who need Braille materials with books they’ll enjoy.
The Bismarck Veterans Memorial Library has their own selection of Braille books.
They range from children’s books, to books on how the code was invented.
This librarian says the important thing is giving everyone the chance to read.
“We just like to have all types of languages available. We just want to make sure that everyone, however they read, have access and can understand what’s available to them,” Traci Juhala, Bismarck Veterans Memorial Public Library says.
If you would like to check out a book in, or about Braille, the library now has a selection on display.
