Touching is believing

Blind supporters marched through the streets of Grahamstown, 6 July, to promote literature for the blind.
“The blind are in desperate need for the books” said Andrew Brooks the digital technical assistant for South African Library for the Blind. The SALB is the only institution that produces an audio book in an audio digital format. All books used by the blind are made from six dots called “Briaile cells" said Brooks.
“We want government especially Arts and Culture to sponsor the South African library for the blind,” he said.
The march was honoured by the MEC for Sports, Recreation, and Arts and Culture Xoliswa Tom.
