March 27 2020: RNIB update - braille and giant print lending library temporary suspension:

Following the Covid-19 outbreak in the UK, and following current Government public health guidelines, our library landlord has taken the difficult decision to close the site where our braille and giant print library collection and equipment is housed. We have had to suspend our hardcopy braille and giant print lending library service but will do everything we can to resume normal service as soon as possible.

If you are an existing member of the library, please keep any braille books you have on loan from us. You do not need to return them until further notice.

Otherwise, if you have any questions about library services from RNIB, please contact our Helpline on 03031239999 or email [email protected].
