We are excited to announce fifty titles selected by the Print/Braille Advisory Group that NLS will produce in print/braille during FY23.

The advisory group’s enthusiasm, expertise, and dedication to our youngest patrons made this year’s list the best yet! The Collection Development Section would like to thank the following network librarians who served on the advisory group: Erin Groth (WA1A), Kayleigh Matheson (TX1A), Meghan McCormack (MO1A), LaShawn Miles (MD1A), and Carolyn Reese (PA2A).

This year’s print/braille list features Spanish/bilingual books, easy readers in comic book format, and tactile graphics.
