King Abdulaziz Public Library converts children’s publications into braille

The King Abdulaziz Public Library has converted a number of its children’s publications into braille in collaboration with the Visual Impairment Association in Riyadh, according to the Saudi Press Agency.
The collection includes children’s stories written for those aged 5-10 years that are rich in Saudi culture, traditions, and values.

The library is also converting new collections of books for various age groups into braille.

The initiative is part of its objective to make itself more accessible to all members of society.

KAPL’s children’s libraries also hope to expand their educational media options.

Dr. Bandar Al-Mubarak, KAPL director general, explained that such social initiatives are in line with the library’s social and cultural responsibility to reach this segment of readers.

The children’s library has previously collaborated with other government agencies and organizations to broaden its reach. For example, it provides 100 publications for disabled children and 100 publications for orphaned children each year.
