To commemorate the 20th anniversary of Maryland Library for the Blind and
Physically Handicapped (LBPH) in its home on 415 Park Avenue, Baltimore,
Maryland, Friends is hosting a celebration of access to books. You are
cordially invited to attend this festivity.
Date: Saturday, October 27
Time: 10 am -1 pm
Two featured speakers at the celebration will be Karen Keninger, who became
director of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically
Handicapped, Library of Congress, on March 26, 2012, and Heather Wandell,
Maryland author of Monkey Business: 37 Better Business Practices Learned
Through Monkeys. We will also celebrate and recognize the numerous
contributions of LBPH volunteers.
The new superintendent of the Maryland State Department of Education, Doctor
Lillian M. Lowery, will also attend this celebration. We need to let Dr.
Lowery know how important LBPH is to the blind. We need lots of blind
persons in attendance to communicate this message. Please plan to join us
and show your support for LBPH. Looking forward to seeing you on October
