How You Can Help
The Friends of the NC Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (FNCLBPH) supports the work of the NC Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NCLBPH). The library is the public library for citizens of North Carolina who cannot use regular print due to a visual or physical disability. The library is located in Raleigh, but serves patrons all across the state through the mail. The library circulates books and magazines in large print, braille, and in audio formats. The library also circulates specially formatted movies. The library is part of a large network of cooperating libraries across the United States serving patrons in all 50 states. This network is organized under the Library of Congress' National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS). The goal of all of these programs is to offer persons with print disabilities free public library services. The LBPH is a part of the State Library of North Carolina which is a part of the Department of Cultural Resources. The Friends support the library by providing volunteers, money, and advocacy to ensure that patrons receive the highest quality library services.
