The exhibition dedicated to Keller was opened after an initiative of Līga Ķikute, head of the "See Me" association of visually- and hearing-impaired people.
"I am inspired by her personality as she did not give up. I myself only have visual impairments, but Helen Keller was hearing-impaired as well, and it limited her ability to acquire information. Despite all this she tried dealing with it, found alternate routes and succeeded," said Ķikute.
"I am surprised at how fully she managed to live," she said.
The exhibition features books, photos, press clippings, along a video material about Helen Keller. It's on show until July 4 at the John Paul II Reading Room.
