World Braille Day 2015

Posted on

As part of the World Braille Day celebrations, the BA Taha Hussein Library for the Blind and Visually Impaired is organizing an exhibition to highlight the uses of the Braille system as well as to showcase its collection of Braille books and periodicals. The exhibition will also display some Braille devices and tools.

Two events will be held alongside this year’s exhibition: “Write Your Name in Braille” and “Print Your Picture in Braille”.

World Braille Day is an annual celebration held in honor of Louis Braille, the inventor of the Braille system, which is a reading and writing system used by the blind and visually-impaired.

The Taha Hussein Library celebrates this day every year on the 4th of January to commemorate the birthday of Louis Braille, who was born in 1809.
