Celebrate World Braille Day on Jan. 4 by honoring the inventor of this incredible reading and writing system for people who are visually impaired! Louis Braille created this system in 1824 when he was just 15 years old, revolutionizing how blind and visually impaired people read and write. This day is celebrated to recognize the importance of braille literacy around the world, giving those with visual impairments a chance to be independent learners. So take some time today to appreciate what Louis Braille did for us over two centuries ago!
