Everyone is fascinated when they find out that I’m a Braille and Talking Book Librarian. Their first question inevitably is, “So can you read braille?”
Well, I can read uncontracted braille, but I read it slower than a worm moves across pavement, and contracted braille is completely beyond me. However, I am excited about all the changes in braille technology. Refreshable braille displays are amazing!
As to my personal life, I live in Michigan with my two maniacal children. I’m still trying to figure out whether my children are human. I secretly believe I gave birth to aliens. If you ever met them, you would understand why I think they are aliens.
