In observance of the 200th anniversary of Louis Braille’s birth, the Library of Congress is presenting the exhibition “Louis Braille: His Legacy and Influence,” open now through January 30, 2010. NLS, a provider of braille services since 1931, is the curator for the display of materials related to braille and its use. The exhibition is located on the 6th floor of the James Madison Building at 101 Independence Avenue, Washington, D.C. This exhibition may be viewed at Louis Braille: His Legacy and Influence.
As a companion to the exhibition, NLS assembled the following resources to highlight the critical importance of braille in the lives of blind people. These offerings include materials provided by NLS as well as links to other organizations that provide braille services or materials related to braille.
