Celebrate Louis Braille at the St. Cloud Library

Celebrate Louis Braille at the St. Cloud Library

   Representatives from the Central Minnesota chapter of the National Federation of Blindness will be at the St. Cloud Public Library on Saturday Jan. 4, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. to talk about being blind in today's society, demonstrate technology that assists blind people, and show how to write and read Braille.
   This program in the library's Array Room is in commemoration of Louis Braille's 200th birthday. Braille was a pupil and then instructor at the National Institute for Blind Youth in Paris where, by 1837, he had developed the Braille system still used for reading by individuals who are blind.
