Visual, Physical, and Reading Disabilities Resources

Did you know that the Minnesota Braille and Talking Book Library located in Faribault, MN offers library services to those where conventional print is a barrier?  One such service is delivery of materials free of charge through the U.S. Mail Service; these materials are available in a catalog and can be requested multiple ways.  Many books and magazines can, also, be downloaded through the Minnesota Braille and Audio Reading Download (MN BARD).  To learn more about this program and to apply for it, go to https://education.mn.gov/MDE/fam/mbtbl/.

Minnesota Resource Libraries (MNRL) is a statewide library providing information and resources to help families and educators meet the educational needs of Minnesota children and youth who have hearing and or vision loss. To learn more about MNRL, go to Minnesota State Academies for the Deaf and the Blind Resources. To access the MNRL collection, go to Minnesota Resource Libraries Online Catalog.
