NEW EVENT! Beginning August 11, 2022, the Patron Engagement Section will offer a monthly program called The Many Faces of BARD. This program will occur on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time. It will last for one hour and will cover one aspect of BARD (the Braille and Audio Reading Download) usage. Each program will start with a brief presentation. The remainder of the time will be spent answering questions about the presentation or other questions related to BARD usage. NLS will announce the topic for the next presentation at the end of each program. The first presentation will provide an overview of all of the available BARD products.

These sessions are open to all patrons. They can be joined by going to a computer or calling 1-669-245-5252. Full Zoom invitation information follows. To call into a session, participants must use the telephone numbers provided here for rather than the regular Zoom telephone numbers.

Upon connecting, participants will be placed in a virtual waiting room until the program begins. When they enter the room, they will be on mute, and they should remain on mute unless the host calls upon them to speak. At that time, they may unmute by using Alt-A from a computer or star 6 if dialing in by phone.

All Many Faces of BARD programs will be recorded. If participants do not want to be on the recording, they should refrain from speaking.
