For a child to develop into a mature, informed, and literate adult he or she must have access to ideas, facts, theories, attitudes, and vicarious emotional experiences. While the written word perhaps has been neglected somewhat in recent years in favor of other media television, movies, video games, etc.-- an understanding of and the ability to use language still signifies and is part of mature intelligence. Therefore, blind persons--especially blind children--need access to reading material. To a blind person, library service is a critical--often the only--source of reading material. While a sighted person has not only his or her public library but the local book store, newsstands, the dentist's waiting room, and book clubs, to supply him or her with reading material, a blind person cannot expect to get recorded or Brailled literature from these sources.
