Braille Reading Library (BRL)
In addition to the core training curriculum, the Seattle Lighthouse features a new Braille Reading Library (BRL). This library consists of a classroom and braille library reading room. The library is stocked with an abundance of braille books and magazines, available for braille learners to read and study on-site or check-out to take home. The library is used for braille reading and practice before and after work, during breaks and during paid training time for practice. Staff frequently assess the braille reading library and make sure employees are aware of its location and potential benefits. Staff maintains reading material and makes sure material is current and relevant. Material is updated based on publication and varies in degree of subject matter and range in difficulty.
