Hi Eleanor,

Do you mean books from local authority libraries?

print books and of course as we do not read print books why should we be
paying an extra cost for alternative format

Same here, I know the tb service costs, subscriptions met some of 
that
cost in prior times, but now it's all free, they will have a hard time 
if donations don't keep up with what even the heavily subsidised 
subscriptions brought in.

I dont necessarily think TB should be free. I am very happy for RNIB 
to
seek donations. I just wonder about where it might end up. Will the 
strategy work?

Let me see if I have understood this properly. You think that the 
talking
book service should be "free" - i.e. paid for from donations, but you 
don't think RNIB should actually ask for donations )which of  course 
we are all free to make or not according to our preferences and 
circumstances) in order to run it.
Is that right?

Hello,

Just got email fron RNIB Connect, which contained the following:
"Help grow the Talking Books library

RNIB has launched a new online fund allowing supporters to donate 
more
easily, as teams work hard to reach their targets through unique 
fundraising drives and activities.

The charity encourages those who find the talking books service of
benefit to setup an online fund and a new book to the online shelf. 
You can find out more by visiting rnib.org.uk/talkingbooks"

Is it just me? I am puzzled as to exactly what this means?
Comes very soon after their making Talking Books free...
The link they provide does not give further info about this fund, 
as far
as I can see.

Mike

pardon my sarcasm  but, it looks look the "free" service wont be 
free for much longer. expect the RNIB to ramp up their campaign with
