Braille reference available at state library

Members of the public can learn something about braille - the writing system designed for the blind - in a new reference book available at Nevada's State Library and Archives.

The 600-page anthology, "Braille: Into the Next Millennium," contains articles by more than two dozen experts in braille.

Braille is a system of writing for the blind that uses raised dots to create letters and numbers.

Braille literacy is a concern of advocacy groups and service providers.

Keri Putnam, regional librarian for the blind and handicapped at the state library, said the library intends to provide a copy of the new book to all public libraries in the state by early next year.
