Could you please distribute to your members?


The Wolfner Library Advisory Council has openings for new Council members. 



  a.. To be a representative for  Wolfner Library patrons and to provide a conduit for information from the patron to the Library Director and staff. 
  b.. To advise on the current services provided by the Wolfner Library and how these services may be improved. 
  c.. To study programs and services developed by other libraries for the blind and disabled and by the National Library Service and to make recommendations for their adoption based on analysis. 
  d.. To communicate the value of reading and Wolfner Library services to people throughout the state, particularly those eligible for Wolfner services. 

Wolfner Library serves over 17,000 Missourians of all ages throughout the state, at no cost to the recipient.   Its collection of more than 360,000 volumes of braille or audio books and magazines provide the same benefits to Missourians with visual and physical disabilities that public libraries provide to the general public-whether it is hours of reading pleasure, or an increased knowledge and understanding of their world and the world around them. 


The Council meets quarterly in Jefferson City and travel costs and other expenses incurred by the Council members are reimbursed according to state guidelines. If you would like to be a part of an organization devoted to providing an important service to Missourians with visual and physical disabilities, please send a letter of interest and a resume of qualifications to Richard Smith, Director of Wolfner Library.
