Joel Pierce: Do you have it in braille?

Joel Pierce: Do you have it in braille?

Joel Pierce from the Royal Blind School drops by to tell The Scottish Book Trust about the difficulties that our students face in accessing books. Working at the library at the school is a lot like working at any other library that caters to children and teens. We have our book lovers, our reluctant readers and our genre junkies. Seeing pupils excited about getting a particular book is just as rewarding. But following hard on the heels of excitement about plot, characters, genre or setting is the question of format. Do we have it in a format they can access?
