The Braille and Talking Book Library uses the generous donations given to the Foundation to enhance the library services for Californians unable to read standard print.
* The local recording program uses donated money to cover the cost of print books on California topics not otherwise available. The tapes, recording equipment and supplies are also purchased with Foundation funds.
* The machine repair program receives support for tools, equipment and supplies needed to keep up the tape players used by BTBL readers.
* The volunteer program is able to recognize the thousands of hours contributed by loyal volunteers who work in the recording, repair and book inspection areas. Devoted volunteers enjoy the special celebrations given in their honor and the daily refreshments provided by the Foundation.
* Special needs are also purchased with contributions such as furniture and assistive technology equipment for the public reading room.
Donations received by the Foundation for BTBL will only be used for its programs.
