About Gary John Posch Jr.
Gary John Posch Jr. was an avid braille reader who passed away in 2013 at the age of 36. Gary lost his eyesight due to retinitis pigmentosa, with which he was born. After learning Braille at the age of 13, he became an avid reader who enjoyed reading as a way of “seeing the world.” The books in his collection reflect that love of knowledge. Gary especially enjoyed learning about cooking, the history of all the states in the United States, and baseball. The collection also includes titles in poetry and popular children’s stories. Gary’s parents chose to donate his collection to start the library in his honor.
