You can submit your book to the book selection committee. (There are members
on that committee from throughout the country.)  The other alternative is to
talk with the Washington library to see if they want to do it locally and
then make it available to other libraries.  That's how I got hold of a book
by Ernie Harwell that NLS didn't believe would have wide enough appeal to be
done nationally.  The Michigan library did it and it appeared in the NLS
catalog.  I requested it and the Michigan library sent it along.
One word of caution.  NLS tends to highly favor best sellers.  There are a
number of books about cats, and a number of poetry books, but they may think
haiku about cats only is too narrow a subject range.  That doesn't mean you
shouldn't try, though.

Hi,
How does one go about getting their book recorded for NLS?  It would be neat
if my kitty book could be done.
Thanks
Lauren

I checked on the NLS web site and discovered that the first two are in
process as audio recordings.

The Ft. Vancouver Regional Library has just added 3 books to their
collection, which feature a main character who is blind. The main character
is portrayed in a positive light. The books are Adventures of Abby Diamond,
Adventures of Abby D iamond Out of Sight, and Abby Diamond's Diamond in the
Rough all by author, Kristie Smith-Armand. If your library doesn't have
these books you can request they purchase them for their collection.
