Outreach Campaign Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped Services
Carol Taylor, Director, LBPH
The open house for patrons of the Connecticut State Library's Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, held Tuesday, April 11, 2000, was the kickoff of an outreach campaign for senior adults in Connecticut. This statewide campaign sponsored by the Library of Congress, National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) is specifically designed to reach senior adults who have recently experienced vision loss and eligible persons who reside in retirement communities, nursing homes, convalescent homes, and other healthcare facilities. Throughout the coming year, this mass-media public education campaign will feature news releases, television and radio public service announcements, distribution of brochures and posters, mailings to libraries, senior programs and healthcare facilities, and program exhibits and presentations.
Anyone interested in helping to promote this campaign, wishing to receive promotional materials or needing a program speaker should email or call Carol Taylor, Director, Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped at 1-800-842-4516.
