The National Braille Press has produced a 20-panel traveling display, in print and braille, that takes a
viewer through the highlights of Louis's life, the braille production process, and why braille remains
important today.

Across the nation, tens of thousands of children and adults who are blind or visually impaired
depend on braille every day as their means to independent literacy.

Come celebrate the life of Louis Braille and learn more about the amazing braille reading system.
