The WLBPD@AADL strives to educate the community about the National Library Service’s Talking Books services and identify eligible patrons. Our Outreach & Neighborhood Services staff are available to: give presentations and demonstrations; attend meetings and support groups; host booths at expos and information fairs; and visit local libraries, schools, and institutions. If you or your organization are interested in having a staff member schedule a visit, or if your group would like to visit the WLBPD@AADL for an informational session and a tour, please call (734) 327-8327, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Washtenaw County libraries help raise public awareness of the WLBPD@AADL by acting as demonstration sites. By providing demonstrations of WLBPD equipment and materials, demonstration sites make the WLBPD’s services known to Washtenaw County residents who otherwise might not have been aware of them. While demonstration sites do not circulate materials, they do have machines and materials on-site to show what's available through the WLBPD. Demonstration sites also have applications available upon request.
The following libraries in Washtenaw County serve as WLBPD demonstration sites: Chelsea District Library, Dexter Public Library, Manchester District Library, Milan Public Library, Northfield Township Area Library, Salem-South Lyon District Library, Saline District Library, and Ypsilanti District Library.
Institutions and agencies whose clientele may include those who are blind, low vision, or physically disabled are eligible for a WLBPD institutional account. An institutional account allows an agency to check out materials and keep equipment for demonstrations and group activities, or to loan to clients who do not want or may not be able to manage their own WLBPD account.
