National Library Service Music Notes Blog

I wanted to share a great resource from the National Library Service (NLS), NLS Music Notes Blog. Here is the description of the blog from NLS:

“NLS Music Notes is a blog for and about those who want, need or provide the special format music of braille, audio, and large print offered by the NLS Music Section. We will showcase this collection, which covers both classical and popular music, with posts of new titles added, along with interviews of and articles about blind and low vision musicians, music braille transcribers, as well as features about current music events and activities.”  Go to NLS Music Notes Blog

Also, here is a link to more information about the music services provided by the National Library Service. Patrons have access to a collection of braille, large-print, and recorded instructional materials about music and musicians. 

Library Consumer Advisory Committee

LCAC-logoThe Library Consumer Advisory Committee (LCAC) works with the Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped to assist in:

  • increasing public awareness of the library
  • increasing the potential of library services to underserved individuals
  • assisting in policy development and strategic planning

The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, Library of Congress, requires that each network library have an advisory committee composed of a representative group of users.

The LCAC meets four times a year on the last Friday of January, April, July and October. The size of the Committee ranges from eight to fifteen members. The Committee maintains a Facebook page to communicate with library patrons and the public. Here for the LCAC Facebook Page

The Library Consumer Advisory Committee is always looking for energetic people to serve on the committee. If you are interested, contact Sarah Willeford, Director, Iowa Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, (515) 281-1291,
