The German Central Library for the Blind (Deutsche Zentralbücherei für Blinde, DZB), which today is located on Gustav-Adolf-Straße 7, aspires to expand the educational opportunities for blind and visually impaired people.

Since its foundation in 1894, the library has made literature and other information available in a suitable form.

The braille library is as old as the German Central Library for the Blind itself and is the largest of its kind in Germany. The collection includes works of fiction, non-fiction and specialist literature, children's and young adult literature and audio books. Here you can borrow 16,200 books and magazines in Braille, more than 6,200 music notation titles and music theory works and around 30,000 audiobook titles.
