Braille Book Exchange
What Is the Process for Using the Braille Book Exchange List?
Books that are not accepted into the MSB library’s braille book collection for loan to students throughout Missouri may have their titles added to a Braille Book Exchange List. You can find a resource list of these books on the MSB online catalog, at http://msb.follettdestiny.comClick on “Missouri School for the Blind”. Next click on “Resource Lists” on the left, then on “Public Lists” on the right, then select “Braille Book Exchange List” from the list. You may decide if the books will be either given directly to students to keep, or kept at the school for students’ use. To request books that are on the Braille Book Exchange List or learn how to borrow braille books from the MSB Library Media Center collection for a student, contact the MSB school librarian at Steven.Daley@msb.dese.mo.gov.
What Happens to Braille Books that No One Wants?
If there are braille books that no one in Missouri wants, there are some agencies overseas that would like to have braille books in English and some books may be sent to those agencies. Books that are in very poor condition may be discarded.
