The Friends of Library Access, Inc. do much to support the Braille and Talking Book Library, the volunteers, and the patrons. They underwrite and participate actively in advocacy and outreach activities, which publicize the Library’s services and educate the public about disability-related issues.

Friends of Library Access, Inc. is a nonprofit corporation. Their mission is three fold:

Since its inception in 1992, the Friends of Library Access, Inc. has purchased and donated supplies and equipment, including:

Funds received from dues ($10.00 per year for an individual annual membership, $50.00 per year for a supporting member, or $200.00 for a lifetime membership) and generous donations enable Friends of Library Access, Inc. to continue purchasing equipment and supporting various projects.

A second objective is to help with public education and outreach efforts. Members can promote the Braille and Talking Book Library program in local communities so that all eligible Florida residents are aware of available services.
