This just in…from the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL):
Braille is 200 Years Old!!!
Louis Braille turned 200 in 2009, and the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL) is starting a new transcribing class in 2010!
If you are a perfectionist and love to read, and want to help others read, you could learn to transcribe books into braille!
WTBBL offers a free course in braille transcription in 22 lessons, on Wednesday evenings from January to June 2010. This is a six-month class with weekly computer homework (PC-based software provided).
Classes meet at WTBBL, 2021 9th Avenue (at Lenora) in Seattle. Free parking available during class.
First session on January 6, 2010 begins at 6:00 p.m. All remaining classes are held 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
