The Oklahoma Library for the Blind through its Public Information Office is committed to raising awareness of the library. Representatives from the library travel statewide delivering presentations at libraries, assisted living centers, schools, civic organizations, churches, social agencies, and other groups. If you are interested in finding out how the library operates contact OLBPH and we can arrange a tour of our facility in Oklahoma City; there you can learn more about adaptive technology and Braille.
NFB-NEWSLINE offers over 40 magazines, ranging from the Arts, Science, Health and Fitness, Pop Culture and National and International news. This also includes special local channels to distribute announcements of specific interest to the blind. Contact OLBPH in order to sign up for Newsline.
Oklahoma Telephone Reader
The Oklahoma Telephone Reader (OTR) is an on-demand dial-up information service. OTR is owned and operated by the OLBPH. This allows us to provide more available programming both current and stored for easy listener access. Seven days a week, volunteers record articles from “The Oklahoman,” “Tulsa World” and other publications on to the OTR system. These recordings become digital files accessible through the telephone to OLBPH patrons who are signed up for the service.
If you would like to volunteer for OTR, please call 405-522-0518.
