Braille Library at the Fukuoka City Public Library

The Braille Library is located immediately on your right as you enter the main Library entrance. The Braille Library has two rooms where volunteers can recite material to the visually handicapped on a one-to-one basis. This library also has two computerized voice readers, and a service where volunteers record material for the visually handicapped. Some services may require reservations. For those who are unable to read because of severe impairment, checking out recorded material is possible. Up to 10 books in braille and 20 pieces of recording material can be checked out at one time. Checking out braille material by mail is possible. In such a case, the check out period is 20 days which includes mailing time. Should you come to the library to check out and return braille material, the check out period is 14 days.
