Braille Free Online Library: Bookshare

Friday, March 2, 2018

Are you visually impaired? Do you know someone who has difficulty holding or reading standard print materials? Join us as we discuss the free library services and digital technology instruction available from Braille Institute ( Our staff will lead a hands-on demonstration and explain the resources available to anyone with visual impairments or movement disorders. You will have the opportunity to explore mainstream devices, such as smartphones and tablets, as well as special adaptive technology designed to help you continue your lifelong love of reading and learning. Attendees will also have the opportunity to sign up for a one-year free license for Bookshare (, 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.
