Library for the Blind & Handicapped a Godsend for my Dad

How is your library helping you in these tough economic times? Tell us your story.

My father, who has severe macular degeneration, lost one of his true joys: being able to read. Thanks to the NJ State Library Talking Book and Braille Center, he has found some happiness again by being able to listen to audio books with his supplied digital player. It's been a godsend for him! We've all had to make great sacrifices during this brutal economic situation, which is incorrectly referred to as a recession, but is quite realistically a depression, but should we sacrifice our access to literature, knowledge and resources to aid the unemployed? - Jason, Smithville, TBBC
