Announcing the 2015 NFB Library Card

This is the 2015 Revision of the NFB Library Card. Revision date June 15, 2015.

1. This is an 8 gig SD card. Last year's Library 
card fit on a 4 gig SD card. With all the 
additional material in this year's revision, 
there is now less than half a gig of unused space on this 8 gig card.
2. This revision contains professional recordings 
of the last 10 years of the Annual Conventions of 
the National Federation of the Blind.
3. This revision contains 50 live recordings of our beloved NFB Songs.
4. This revision contains the Kernel Books in 
live mp3 audio format, with each Kernel Book in 
its own folder. These Kernel Book recordings have 
been recently digitized from cassette, by our 
National Office. Previous revisions of the 
Library card made use of partially synthesized recordings.
5. New folders have been added for Mark Riccobono 
containing both live recordings of his recent 
speeches and text articles with speeches and bio information.
6. Numerous speeches and articles have been added 
to many of the existing folders such as the 
Jacobus tenBroek, Kenneth Jernigan, Marc Maurer, 
Parents of Blind Children, Schroeder, miscellaneous,, and others.
7. A new folder has been added with Materials for Blind Parents.
8. A new folder has been added for materials in 
Spanish from the NFB of Puerto Rico.
9. A new folder has been added, entitled, "So You 
Don't See As Well As You Used To", containing 
material for older people who are experiencing declining vision.
10. A Newsletter article has been added, from 
1940, reporting on the Organizing meeting of the 
National Federation of the Blind in Wilksbarre, 
Pennsylvania, on November 16, 1940. It was 
published by the Pennsylvania Federation in the 
Winter 1940 edition of their newsletter, entitled, "We Are The Blind".

Of course this 2015 NFB Library Card also 
contains all of the items in our previous 
versions, including, but not limited to:
1. All available banquet speeches by Jacobus 
tenBroek, Kenneth Jernigan and Marc Maurer, going 
back to 1952. These speeches are in live mp3 
audio, as well as in text, to allow for doing 
word searches, and cutting and pasting into other documents.
2. Five DAISY books with Enhanced Navigation, 
allowing for more efficient access to important 
parts of these books. These books include 
"Walking Alone and Marching Together", Kenneth 
Jernigan, The Master, The Mission, The Movement, 
narrated by Marc Maurer; and "Freedom for the 
Blind, The Secret is Empowerment" by James H. Omvig.
3. There are literally hundreds of other books, 
articles, speeches and documents, arranged into 
folders by subject, for easier access. These 
folders include, Parents of Blind Children, 
Materials for Blind Parents, Students, and for 
Leaders of local chapter and state affiliates of 
the National Federation of the Blind.
4. There are folders of important historical 
documents such as the minutes of the original 
organizing meeting of the National Federation of 
the Blind held in Wilksbarre, Pennsylvania in 
1940, a 4-part series of interviews with Newell 
Perry, teacher and mentor of Jacobus tenBroek, 
and the live mp3 audio of the speech Jacobus 
tenBroek gave at the funeral of Newell Perry.
