SUBJECT   :              Public Education Advisory Group contact information

In November 2011, NLS reactivated the Public Education Advisory Group (Network Library Manual, Section 4.4.4). Currently, membership is open only to network libraries as we consider network public education needs. As NLS and the network develop their plans, consumer groups and organizations may be invited to join.

The committee's purpose is to represent the public awareness concerns and goals of the NLS network of cooperating libraries. Each network regional conference chair appoints one member. The group meets once per month to discuss and develop recommendations for public education materials and projects. The group will also be asked to review and assist with some NLS public education plans and products during development.

Attached is contact information for the members of the Public Education Advisory Group. Please feel free to contact your region's representative on the group with any ideas you have to help us spread the word about the NLS talking-book and braille program.
