January was chosen for this celebration because it is the birth month of Louis Braille, the inventor of the system of raised dots that made it possible for people who are blind to read and write for themselves with independence and freedom.
These are some of the children’s books in Braille that you can check out from the Fountaindale Public Library:
Curious George by H.A. Rey
Henry and Mudge Under the Yellow Moon by Cynthia Rylant
Arthur’s Computer Disaster by Marc Brown
