In addition, we are transitioning from landlines to cell phones for some staff members, resulting in new phone numbers for many staff. The old email addresses will forward to the new addresses for a period of time, but we encourage you to begin using the new email addresses now to avoid issues when the forwarding expires. Landline changes have been effective as of November 16th.

OBOB Book Recorded Locally

School-aged users of the Talking Book and Braille Library are going to start having more complete access to the yearly list of OBOB books thanks to our new recording studio!  While most of the OBOB titles selected each year appear in the NLS collection of over 100,000 audio and Braille books we can circulate, inevitably there are a couple that don't.  This year, though, we were able to locally-record one of the two titles missing from the national collection right here at the State Library using our own recording booth.  The book, Before They Were Authors: Famous Writers as Kids, by Elizabeth Haidle, was narrated by our studio manager Joel Henderson, since we cannot allow volunteers into the building at this time.  It will also be uploaded to the NLS's BARD download-on-demand service so young readers across the country can have access to it as well.  Exciting things are happening at the State Library!
