LSU Libraries will host Louis Braille Bicentennial Exhibit in June and July:



"To celebrate the 200th birthday of Louis Braille, who pioneered the braille tactile reading system for the blind, non-profit publishing company National Braille Press has produced a 20-panel traveling exhibit. The display will visit LSU’s Middleton Library from June 18-July 12 and will be housed in the library’s lobby. The LSU stop is one of only 20 appearances for the exhibit across the United States."

"Government documents issued in braille will be on display in the Government Documents Department. Publications include lists of books in braille as well as those on human resources and social security. Of related interest are patents issues for equipment for the visually or physically impaired.
