Descriptions

Does your library community include people whose ability to read is affected by a vision impairment, a physical impairment or a reading disability? The New Jersey state Library Talking Book and Braille Center (TBBC) can help. Learn what the TBBC is (Braille and audiobook resources) and is not (a duplication of local public library resources). This program will also touch briefly on the various technologies available for TBBC users to read Braille and listen to audiobooks, including those supplied by TBBC and those supplied commercially.  The print disabled can read and use the Internet; you can help them to do so!

After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:

·         Help library customers become certified as eligible to use TBBC resources;

·         Discover and share TBBC books that aren’t available in public libraries, bookstores, or Worldcat;

·         Explain the copyright exceptions that allow TBBC resources to be made available at no cost to the patron;

·         Expand outreach to the print-disabled in your community;

·         Include the print-disabled in your traditional library programs.
