In 2010, CNIB received two years of funding from the Ontario Government, which supports the delivery of CNIB Library services to Ontarians with print disabilities offered through Ontario’s public libraries, including First Nations libraries. The CNIB Library developed its collection of aboriginal literature to meet the needs of Partner libraries working within aboriginal communities. Wasauksing First Nation Public Library, a CNIB Partner library, embraced the aboriginal collection and uses it to enhance its services for clients with print disabilities. See how the CNIB Library developed this innovative collection and how it is being used and marketed in this Partner Library.
