2 From the Director by Danielle Miller Summer has been busy for everyone at WTBBL, and fall shows no sign of slowing down. Youth Services, especially with the summer reading program, has been humming along. Our Audio Book Production Department is also very active, in part because my vision of expanding languages offered in local book production is becoming a reality. We are now recording audio books in Spanish with a growing team of narrators and reviewers, allowing us to add to our collection and increase outreach to Washington s Hispanic community. In fact, Paco Díaz, our first narrator, is in this issue s volunteer spotlight. Our first book in Spanish will be Hoyos (Holes) by Louis Sachar, DBC by the State Librarian. Until recently, Deputy Secretary of State Greg Lane had been serving as acting State Librarian. I want to thank Greg for all the support he gave to me and to WTBBL staff, patrons and the service overall. As we move into fall, my favorite season, often seen as one of transition, we welcome Cindy Aden as our new State Librarian. Cindy has already shown great interest and enthusiasm, and I think we can look forward to exciting things on the horizon and having an engaging leader who can spread the word about WTBBL throughout the state. For the fourth year, we are producing the state Voters Pamphlet in audio, and it is the biggest one yet, printing at over 330 pages. For our narrators, that s the size of a pretty decent book, but with a serious deadline. Producing the pamphlet reflects our mission of providing equal access to information. Removing barriers to information that is so important to participation in the election process protects voter rights. WTBBL is a program of the Washington State Library, which is headed 1 Washington Talking Book & Braille Library Danielle Miller On the Cover: WTBBL volunteer narrator Sandra (right) tells about our added focus on books in Spanish at Fiestas Patrias at Seattle Center.
3 From Cindy Aden, State Librarian Dear WTBBL Community, I am pleased to be able to address you as the new Washington State Librarian. At this writing, it is the middle of my sixth week and there is still so much to learn. But, a few things have already been emphatically communicated to me about the responsibilities of my new role. Chief among them, the WTBBL staff has made it clear what an important mandate it has to serve those who cannot read standard print and how important the full support of the State Library is in providing this service. I was recently invited to WTBBL to have a tour and to meet the entire staff and to hear its stories. The library is an inspiring place, I have to admit, and it s very impressive to be someplace where every person knows why they are there and embraces the importance of their contribution. It reminds me of the story that used to be told years ago about the janitor at NASA. When a touring group of senators encountered a janitor mopping a floor, they asked him, What do you do here for NASA? The janitor replied, Why, I m putting a man on the moon! That kind of focus and shared mission is apparent at WTBBL. While I am only just starting at the State Library, I am no stranger to Washington libraries. I got my start in librarianship after several years of community journalism in California and in Kirkland and Edmonds, where I was the managing editor of weekly newspapers. I attended the University of Washington for my graduate studies in library science. When I graduated I successfully competed for an internship at the Library of Congress, where I spent two years learning all about the Library and serving as a Congressional reference librarian. I left the Library of Congress to return to the Northwest, where the University of Washington recruited me to be a reference librarian in the graduate library. After six years there, I had an opportunity to serve as head of circulation in the law library a management opportunity I could not pass up. Following two years in that position, I was recruited to be an associate director at Kitsap Regional Library. It was such a change to serve in a public library, where titles are weeded instead of saved forever! I loved that position, but after two years of riding the ferry an hour (continued) 2 Reading Matters - Fall 2016
4 From Cindy Aden, State Librarian (continued ) Wikipedia, Goodreads and other companies large and small that wanted to work with libraries and have access to that rich library data. I left OCLC and was happy to be given the opportunity to use all that I have learned, working for and with libraries, in this new role. Cindy Aden each way, every day, I had to find a position closer to home and to my very young children. Amazon.com was looking for someone with library skills who could tolerate the chaos of a busy start-up, and I jumped in as its first librarian. So you see, I come to this position full of enthusiasm and experiences that I am eager to use to make the Washington State Library a significant contributor to the well-being of every citizen of Washington by providing literary and informational support. I look forward to more opportunities to meet all of you, who are such important supporters of WTBBL. Thank you for all you do to make WTBBL such an outstanding part of our community. You have so much to be proud of. Six years later, I stumbled out of Amazon and into a job at Corbis, the image company owned by Bill Gates that was just recently sold. After a few years there, OCLC, the world s largest library cooperative, recruited me to manage relationships with non-library companies. I got to work with Google, Yahoo, 3 Washington Talking Book & Braille Library
5 WTBBL Appreciates SightConnection! by Tyler Kaye Sudden vision loss can be an uncertain and even fearful experience. Previously routine tasks such as driving, reading and doing work around the house can become major challenges. Depression and a sense of isolation can settle in. It s the job of Jeffrey Gerhardstein to help people cope with the changes. Jeffrey is a social worker with SightConnection, a nonprofit agency serving over a thousand clients each year in the Puget Sound region. He spends much of his time on the road making home visits to people who have recently begun losing their vision or have moved into a new living environment. During the visit, Jeffrey offers a listening ear, assesses the client s needs, and discusses community resources that can help him or her adapt. He may connect the person with local paratransit services. They may talk about support groups in the area. Other specialized services from SightConnection might be arranged, such as orientation and mobility training, inhome vision rehabilitation, and assistive technology. After years in the field of community mental health, Jeffrey joined SightConnection in The community that is formed around low vision is very strong, he said. They had a way of saying thank you and reeling me in. When I started working, I had never heard of a talking book machine. He soon discovered that many of his clients would have stacks of talking books close at hand. People continue to do what they love, and the library is making sure they don t give up on those independent living skills, said Jeffrey. Introducing people to WTBBL is an important part of the work Jeffrey and his colleagues do at SightConnection. Last year, they referred nearly 200 new users to the library. There s nothing like pulling out the talking book player and watching people learn, he said. For more information about SightConnection and its services, visit sightconnection.org or call (800) Jeffrey Gerhardstein 4 Reading Matters - Fall 2016
6 Youth Services Update by Marian Mays Happy new school year! It s been an exciting summer here in the WTBBL Youth Services Department. My favorite memory of the summer was watching several WTBBL youth participate in the Challenge Air Fly Day event at Paine Field in Everett. Challenge Air was created in 1993 by Rick Amber to change the perception of children with special needs through flight. Several fly days per year are organized by the nonprofit in cities around the nation. These unique events give youth with disabilities the chance to fly in private planes with a guardian and another family member or friend. After flying, youth were greeted by a cheering crowd before receiving their co-pilot certificate and pin. What impacted me most about this event was the passion and willingness to serve among the event volunteers. Even the Challenge Air pilots were volunteering their planes, fuel, and time! It was a great experience, and I can t wait to represent WTBBL at the next Challenge Air Fly Day. A total of 36 youth patrons participated in the 2016 On Your Mark, Get Set, READ! children s summer reading program and Get in the Game: READ! teen program. Both themes emphasized games, play, healthy lifestyles and, of course, 5 Washington Talking Book & Braille Library reading! Summer reading participants were mailed a weekly packet of various book recommendations and suggested activities. Youth were also encouraged to write reviews of books they read throughout the summer and submit them to WTBBL to be posted on our website. You can check out these new reviews along with various recommended reads lists at wtbbl.org/ findabook.aspx. I m already excited for next year s summer reading theme entitled, Build a Better World. Our fall programs begin as summer comes to a close. The 2016 WTBBL Fall Pen Pal Program kicked off on September 15, and will run for three months. WTBBL Pen Pal Programs are open to all students grades 1-12 interested in meeting new friends. Students are matched with another WTBBL student at a different school by reading level and medium (UEB or large print). Watch out for our Spring Pen Pal Program beginning March Don t forget that Multisensory Storytimes continue every week at WTBBL for children up to age 5. All are welcome! Be on the lookout for information about more upcoming events, including the 2017 Washington Braille Challenge. In the meantime, please contact me with any questions or concerns at (206) Have a great school year and happy reading!
7 Poetry at the Library by Marah Blake One of my favorite games as a child was something I now like to call I Am Emily Dickinson. There were few rules to the game other than hiding away with a collection of Dickinson s work as well as a notebook and pencil so that I could attempt my own poems. Once my family noticed my new interest they introduced me to their favorite poets, sharing well-loved collections, and encouraging impromptu recitation. Lately I enjoy reading big anthologies that include a variety of writers, styles, eras and themes. These are just a handful of the anthologies available here at the library: Beauty Is a Verb: The New Poetry of Disability edited by Jennifer Bartlett, Sheila Black, and Michael Northen (DB 74050). This anthology of verse by ninetythree writers spans the history of black poetry in America, with the earliest pieces by Phillis Wheatley and the latest by Nikki Giovanni and Rita Dove. A Book of Luminous Things: An International Anthology of Poetry edited by Czeslaw Milosz (DBW 7373). Selected by Nobel laureate Czeslaw Milosz, this anthology aims to present poetry that is short, clear, readable and realistic. Of course, I cannot leave out the poet who started it all for me: The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson (DB and BR 12581). Anthology shows disability through the lenses of poetry and essays. Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry edited by Billy Collins (DB 75492). Anthology of contemporary verse that grew from former U.S. poet laureate Collins s project to make poetry accessible and inviting to teenagers. Black Nature: Four Centuries of African American Nature Poetry edited by Camille T. Dungy (DB 73042). Marah Blake 6 Reading Matters - Fall 2016
8 Audio Books: And the Beat Goes On! by John Pai Usually, summer here at the audio studios of WTBBL is a time when book production slows down. Not this year! We had a productive summer and are in very good shape as we begin production on the Washington state Voters Pamphlet. We re headed for a record year in local production. Thanks again to our hardworking and passionate volunteers! Here are some recently completed books: DBC 367 The Alpine Yeoman [#25, Emma Lord Mystery] by Mary Daheim.

DBC 384 Black Spokane: The Civil Rights Struggle in the Inland Northwest by Dwayne Mack. Recovers a crucial chapter in the history of race relations and civil rights in America.

10 Volunteer Spotlight on Paco Díaz Being part of a community makes me feel a responsibility to share my experience, talents, and time. Working with nonprofits for many years has shown me the importance of supporting those who most need help. This is something that has always made me feel good, with even the smallest things making a difference. That s why I decided to volunteer and promote WTBBL after I met Rocío Vargas, the library s administrative assistant, on the morning news show I host in Spanish on El Rey 1360 AM. Rocío was our special guest that day, and she talked about what WTBBL offers to its patrons. David Junius ed me to say that I had passed the audition! As a Latino, it is very important to me to give back to the community and, by supporting good causes like WTBBL, we help contribute to the greatness of this nation. I am the first WTBBL volunteer to record books in Spanish, and after three months work, I m happy to share with you my first book, Hoyos (Holes) by Louis Sachar, DBC 6754! I have started recording a second book and hope to continue collaborating with WTBBL for a long time! After listening to all the benefits that the library offers to people with special reading needs and realizing that there were not many talking books recorded in Spanish, I felt the need to help. My native language is Spanish and, along with my passion for producing radio and my joy in supporting others, these elements fit into my reasons for volunteering. I prepared for my audition to see if my performance met with the audio-recording standards of the library. I was very happy when 9 Washington Talking Book & Braille Library
11 Double Your Impact With a Matching Gift to WTBBL! by Laura Mott Did you know that many Washington state companies match donations made by their employees to a wide range of local nonprofits, including WTBBL? Gifts from employees spouses and retirees may also qualify for a matched donation. The impact of matching gift programs can be significant, as many companies match employee donations dollar-for-dollar, which could turn a $50 gift into a $100 gift! Similarly, many companies also sponsor volunteer grant programs, or dollars for doers. These are also a type of giving program, created to encourage volunteerism in communities and provide monetary grants to organizations like WTBBL where Acting State Librarian employees regularly volunteer. It s an easy way for volunteers to provide a contribution without having to take out their checkbooks. Ask your employer if they match employee gifts or have a volunteer grant program to make your donation and time go even further!
