A note about Washington Talking Book & Braille Library:
The Washington Talking Book & Braille Library (WTBBL) is a program of the Washington State Library and the Office of the Secretary of State. Located in Seattle, WTBBL provides library services state-wide, at the library and by mail, to any Washington resident unable to read standard print material due to blindness, visual impairment, deaf-blindness, physical disability (cannot hold a book or turn pages), or reading disability.
WTBBL has been part of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) of the Library of Congress since 1931. WTBBL was one of the first "Regional Libraries" and from 1934 to the late sixties and early seventies, provided library service to the residents of Montana and Alaska. In 2009, WTBBL was honored as the Network Library of the Year and in 2012 was recognized with a mayoral proclamation for our work empowering individuals with disabilities. Visit History of the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library for a more detailed history.
From I-5 (Northbound or Southbound):
• Take the 45th / 50th Street exit #169 • Head West on N.E. 45th Street for about 1 mile • Solid Ground is on the left side of the street on the corner of Woodlawn Ave. N.
• Turn left into the alley (Woodlawn Pl N) just past the building and park in the lot behind the building. If the lot is full, there is plenty of street parking (but be mindful – much of it is two hour parking, and they do ticket!) • If it is not during business hours, the building will be locked. Lettuce Link will have a staff person in the lobby a little bit before the start time to let people in. Once a couple members of the group arrive, someone from the group can be on door duty.
• Also accessible by Metro bus routes #16 and #44
