1 June 2020: RNIB update - braille and giant print lending library reopens:

We have reopened RNIB's hardcopy braille and giant print lending library. The service had been temporarily suspended in March due to the closure of the library building by the landlord in response to the coronavirus pandemic. 
The digital braille library service was in use during the suspension and proved popular, but library members from across the UK can once again borrow braille and large print books by post.
RNIB has taken stringent measures to ensure that staff can return to work safely in the library.
Otherwise, if you have any questions about library services from RNIB, please contact our Helpline on 0303 1239999 or email [email protected].
