The Cambridge Main Library has a Braille embosser, called the Braille Blazer, for use by vision-impaired patrons. The Blazer and accompanying computer software allows the printing of  quality Braille documents.

The Blazer is in the Fuller Room, near the Information Commons. Vision-impaired people can reserve it in two-hour blocks up to 24 hours in advance in person or by calling the (617) 349-4425. (If no one is waiting, you may continue to use the Braille Embosser in two-hour increments, librarians said.) Printing is free.

“The Cambridge Public Library is grateful to Michael Muehe and the Cambridge Commission for Persons with Disabilities for their support of this service,” library officials said in a press release.

The library is at 449 Broadway.
