While we complete the work to add printbraille books back into the catalogue, we have made a selection of printbraille books available for request using the form below.
Printbraille books are ordinary children's picture books with uncontracted braille text added. They are designed for braille readers (or budding braille readers) to read with sighted readers.
You may request up to 3 titles at a time. Copies are limited and we will send you a copy as soon as one is available. Printbraille books are sent by mail in fabric bags. You may keep the books for 6 weeks.
To return the books: place the book back in the fabric bag, flip over the paper mailing card, and place the bag in a Canada Post mailbox. There is no charge for postage.
