The NC Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped

The NC Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NCLBPH) loans accessible print materials to people who cannot read standard print material.  The Library has sponsored two special programs here on TRRS.

FIRST, in order to share information about the library with everyone around the State, NCLBPH and Triangle Radio Reading Service have joined forces to produce a special program just about the Library and the services it offers to people who are blind or physically handicapped.  This program, hosted by George Douglas, includes interviews with Carl Keehn, the Regional Librarian, and well as Gina Powell, the Outreach Coordinator.

The program is underwritten with a grant from the Friends of the NC Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. We hope you enjoy it; and then, if you have not yet become one, that you'll become a patron of NCLBPH.

SECOND, the Friends of the NCLBPH is sponsoring another program called Heard Any Good Books Lately?  Board member and volunteer reader George Douglas is the creative director and producer of this new program that will primarily feature information about new books that are being published and other interesting stories about older books.  We will be drawing from the News & Observer book section, The Week Magazine, and other popular sources.

The series, which started in January, runs the third Tuesday of each month at 8:30 pm and is rebroadcast on Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. Or you can listen to the Heard Any Good Books Lately podcast.
