About

Welcome to the Hawaii State Library for the Blind and Print Disabled (LBPD)!  Designed by architect George W. McLaughlin, the library opened in its present location in 1961. LBPD provides books and magazines in audio and braille for patrons who are certified as having a visual impairment or other physical limitation that prevents them from reading standard printed material. LBPD also has the largest collection of large print books in the state and a Radio Reading Service: a closed-circuit broadcast for registered patrons which features news from the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, grocery ads, and articles and stories from other local publications. If you are interested receiving these free services, please visit our LBPD section to see if you are eligible and learn how to apply.
