Deutsche Zentralbücherei für Blinde

DZB: A Different Sense of Reading!

The DZB (Deutsche Zentralbücherei für Blinde), the German Central Library for the Blind, is situated in Leipzig, a vivid city in the federal state of Saxony, Central Germany. Our main task is to make printed information accessible to blind and visually impaired people. The DZB therefore is all in one, a library, a publishing house and a production centre for braille and talking books. It was founded in 1894.
