Minnesota Resource Center Libraries

The Minnesota Resource Centers are part of the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). The Centers provide information and resources to help families and educators meet the educational needs of Minnesota children and youth who have hearing or vision loss throughout Minnesota. Learn more about each Center below.

The main goal of the Minnesota Resource Center: Blind/Visually Impaired, is to serve all children and youth who are blind/visually impaired, their parents and educational service providers. We promote the individual talents and capabilities of students who are blind/visually impaired, increase their independence, and foster interaction and mutual understanding between these students and other members of their present and future communities.

The Minnesota Resource Center: Deaf/Hard of Hearing serves children and youth who have varying types and degrees of hearing loss. These children may be eligible to receive special education and related services. The Center is located in Faribault, Minnesota, at the Minnesota State Academy for the Deaf.
