102 Talking-Book Club Honors More than 1,600 Centenarians
More than 1,600 centenarians who are users of talking books will be honored during 2005 by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), Library of Congress through membership in the 102 Talking-Book Club
"The 102 Talking-Book Club was conceived to recognize the accomplishments of the national reading program's centenarians. Through induction ceremonies in all states next year, the Library of Congress will honor these 1,600 individuals. The events will highlight the reading services provided by each state and also increase the awareness of others eligible to join their free local or state reading program," said Frank Kurt Cylke, director of NLS.
