Mission Statement

The philosophy of the organization is based on our belief that all people have the right to the opportunity to read.

Description

Braille Library & Transcribing Services, Inc. (formerly Volunteer Braillists and Tapists, Inc., and formerly Volunteer Braillists, Inc.) is a Madison-based non-profit Wisconsin corporation formed in 1971 for the purpose of transcribing reading materials into braille and tape.

The philosophy of the organization is based on our belief that all people have the right to the opportunity to read. Requests for braille transcriptions and tapes of all kinds are accepted, the only limitations being the availability of braillists or tapists and time. When priorities must be set, educational materials take precedence, followed by job- related requests, functional materials, and leisure reading.

To meet its expenses, BLTS conducts an annual fund-raising drive.

It receives no funding from local, state, or federal governmental sources.

Policies are determined by the Board of Directors, which is elected by the general membership. Board meetings are open; any member is welcome to attend.
