Our award-winning Washington Talking Book & Braille Library has received yet another honor. On Tuesday night at Seattle City Hall, Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn presented WTBBL with the Mayor’s Award for the library’s work empowering individuals with disabilities. The event was organized by the Seattle Human Services Coalition.
The mayor also proclaimed June 5, 2012, as “Washington Talking Book & Braille Library Day.” The proclamation was a pleasant surprise for WTBBL Program Manager Danielle Miller, pictured above with McGinn and WTBBL patron Quincy Daniels. “Little did I know it was actually also the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library Day!!” Miller exclaimed.
The Seattle-based WTBBL is part of the Washington State Library, which is a division of the Office of Secretary of State.
