Braille

Prince Albert Public Library is please to be a host library for the National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) Braille book collection as of 2021.

What is Braille?

Braille is a tactile reading and writing system of raised dots that can be read with the fingers of people who are blind or who have low vision. One of the most surprising things about braille is how much space it takes up. A single regular print title on the shelf can often be multiple volumes of braille.

When you borrow books from the distributed braille collection such as Prince Albert Public Library, please treat them with the care and love you treat your own books. Braille books can be easily damaged and the braille text may be flattened and be rendered unreadable.

Our Braille Collection is located at the end of the Adult Fiction section near the Foreign Language books and Literacy books.

Currently, our collection is small, but it will grow as time goes on. We will have both adult titles and children's titles.
