Jasper Middle School student Charlee Ray was visibly excited as a media specialist from Cherokee County unboxed braille books she’ll now be able to check out from the library.

“This is so awesome,” Charlee said as her fingers ran across the title pages – “A Dog Called Kitty” by Bill Wallace; a historical fiction series about the Titanic; “Fluffy Meets the Tooth Fairy,” and more. “They’re ginormous,” she told the librarians with a big cheshire grin.
