Louis Braille School Presents:
The “Touch to See” Program at Imagine Children’s Museum
In celebration of National Braille Literacy Month, the Imagine Children’s Museum is featuring a special presentation by the Louis Braille School. The “Touch to See” program will be on Saturday, January 12, from 11 am to 2 pm. Visitors to the museum will have the opportunity to braille their names on a braille writer, explore braille books with tactile illustrations, and try a talking calculator and braille watch. They will meet a guide dog and enjoy a story read in braille by the guide dog’s handler.
The Louis Braille School, located in Edmonds, is a private, non-profit, day school for children who are visually impaired. January is the birth month of Louis Braille, the Frenchman who developed the raised dot system of reading and writing.
