        Subject:  Ten-Squared Talking-Book Club celebrates centenarian patrons
        
              
        
        NLS encourages network libraries to celebrate their centenarian patrons through the
        Ten-Squared Talking-Book Club. In fiscal year 2005, thirteen network libraries held events
        to  induct sixty-one patrons into the Ten-Squared Talking-Book Club. The events have
        garnered  media attention for the network's free library services and highlighted the achieve
        ments of our patrons, who continue to actively read and learn after more than a
        century of living.  
        
        The events provide an ongoing opportunity to heighten awareness of the free reading
        services provided by each state and to communicate the benefits of the program to
        eligible individuals. For every Ten-Squared event, individual libraries are responsible for
        contacting their centenarian patrons, managing the event logistics, and notifying 
        the media.
