The Friends of Library Access is a nonprofit corporation that assists the Florida Bureau of Braille and Talking Book Library in Daytona Beach serve persons who aren’t able to read conventional print. Our mission is public education and advocacy, making print disabled persons aware of the wonderful services available through this Braille and Talking Book Library in Dytona beach. We assist financially with the provision of accessible media, including Braille and recorded and electronic materials.

Since its inception in 1992, we have helped this Braille and Talking Book Library continue its service of excellence through key equipment purchases and community awareness activities. In appreciation of the volunteers, we have sponsored annual volunteer appreciation luncheons, and other continuing activities and awards for their invaluable service. We have also assisted consumer organizations in successful advocacy for continuation of sub regional Braille & Talking Book Libraries.

The Friends is managed by a Board of twelve trustees, which are elected for 3 year terms by the membership. Each November four seats are open for election. The Friends’ Board maintains a list of potential Board of Trustees members. Board meetings are open to anyone interested and are held quarterly on the second Saturday of February, May, August and November. Anyone interested can attend via conference call.
