Washtenaw Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled @ AADL

Today, February 2, the Washtenaw Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled @ AADL opens across the library system. As a designated sub regional library of the National Library Service, AADL will serve all residents of Washtenaw County who are unable to read standard print either due to blindness or physical disability. Approximately, 500 persons are currently registered, but we believe that thousands are eligible, and we are hoping to see this service expand.

NLS is administered through a national network of cooperating libraries with the mission “that all may read”. The service provides a free library program of Braille and audio materials to eligible borrowers in the United States through postage free mail. This service was mandated by Congress through the Pratt-Smoot Act of 1931 and remains a service of the Library of Congress.

Please call 734.327.4224 for more information about eligibility, applications, and services.



It is also a service for people who are dyslexic.

I am legally blind, and have an application from the Commission for the Blind and need to knnow how to get it to you, if you are the already established library ofor the Blind in Ann Arbor.
The Commission, or now called Bureau for Blind Persons, has interviewed me and given me aids for low vision, but also approved me for using the Libraryfor the Blind.
How can I get my application to you,
Thank you,
Linda Brokaw
