Books for the Blind.
—Books on records for the blind are available nationally in increasing quantity from two sources: the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and Recording for the Blind, Inc., at 121 E. 58th St., New York. The Library puts out about 200 books a year, in 150 to 200 copies, mostly in the general or recreational field. Recording for the Blind, Inc. is strictly educational and will turn out about 850 books this year, in a much smaller number of copies, averaging 9 or 10 copies apiece. Since these'are educational books on continuous loan through the libraries serving the blind, this number of copies has so far proved sufficient.The Recording for the Blind disks and the Library of Congress disks are both designed to be played on the Talking Book machine, or record player, obtainable without charge through the state agencies serving the blind.
