DancingLight Posted August 12, 2005 Report Share Posted August 12, 2005 Hey all!I am really excited b/c I got approved for services from the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. All that I needed was my doctor's signature saying that I couldn't read because of an 'organic cause' or physicaly disability. I got approved without further questioning. My PCP knows me and my situation, and had no problem signing the form for me if it would help me to have more enjoyment of books.I know many of you are able to focus to read, but I am one of the folks that cannot. I can go online for bits at a time, but most of the time am too fatigued to read. And, even holding a book for a long period of time would be a challenge! Sad, I know, but hey...Anyway, I have gotten a bit tired of the limited selection at our local library and the LBPH has a HUGE selection!!! I am soooo EXCITED. This for me was a big step in the 'acceptance'...that I am disabled. They send you a tape player. And bi-monthly catalog updates. And you get your books on tape in the mail. No late fees. Incredibly easy packages and free return shipping. Order and renew books online, by phone, by email, by fax. The librarians so far have all been incredibly wonderful and helpful.For me, my world is pretty small...and I am homebound. This opens up a lot of doors for me and I am just 'tickled pink' to have all this selection of books. I just don't know where to start! This also saves my mom trips to the library!I just wanted to post this in case it would help any of the rest of you who struggle with reading...The address is....http://www.loc.gov/nls/AND...please let me know your favorite books you've been reading!!!!! Later Alligators!emily Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
