In addition to the weekly braille classes offered there, employees are also free to visit the Braille Reading Library during weekly open hours and to check out brailled books and periodicals.

The BRL is featured in many of our tours, which includes a discussion with Employee Support Services Manager Julie Brannon on the history of braille. Click here to schedule a tour of the Braille Reading Library as part of your visit to the Lighthouse.
