Braille Books

Sister Veronica Haarth was best known for her untiring and lifelong work on behalf of blind adults. In 1920 she began studying Braille and eventually transcribed Catholic books into Braille for adults. The books could be found in public libraries across the country. Her work did not end there. Because of her influence, educational opportunities for the blind were made available at the College of St. Francis. Sister Veronica procured better living conditions, had medical services donated, made arrangements for cultural entertainment and did whatever she could think of to improve the lives of the blind.
