Oklahoma Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped
The Oklahoma Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped provides free
services to Oklahomans who are blind or visually impaired and those with
reading disabilities or physical limitations that make it difficult to use
Thousands of books, textbooks and periodicals in recorded and braille formats, and playback equipment are available to library patrons at no charge.
The latest technology to come to those who are blind is the new digital format, which stores an entire audio book on one device the size of a cassette.
The Library provides textbooks and other instructional materials in braille
and other accessible formats for students with visual impairments in
kindergarten through grade 12, as long as funds are available to meet the
requests. For more information visit the
Accessible Instructional Materials Center page.
The Hill is the Library's award-winning sensory garden and walking path designed with special features for people with disabilities, including a tactile map in braille and materials chosen for fragrance and texture. The garden was built and is primarily maintained with grant funds.
The Library, operated by the Division of Visual Services, is part of the national network of libraries affiliated with the Library of Congress National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
Oklahomans for Special Library Services (OSLS) is an active organization which supports the work of the library.
