Library Without Walls favorite books

Janet Dickelman
 

Our Library Without Walls will take place at 8:30 PM on Wednesday September
15.
Library Users of America is a special interest affiliate of the American
Council of the Blind interested in exploring all of the ways that blind
people and reading come together. We publish a newsletter at least twice a
year called the "lua Ledger" which is available to members. In addition to
Libraries Without Walls Library Users occasionally holds a call known as LUA
Links.
It has taken us a while to get to this edition of Library Without Walls.
This is an especially exciting iteration of our show in that we have been
reminding everyone over the past few months that, in September, we would be
asking each person who wants to share with us to tell us about their
favorite fiction book and their favorite nonfiction book. It would be
helpful if you can tell us where your book can be found. We hope that you
may know the book number if appropriate and we expect that the books you
choose will be available in an accessible format. After our show Jane Carona
will send out a list of all the books we share to all members of Library
Users of America.
We will be using ZOOM MEETING for this event. The ID for the meeting is
526727187. You can use this id if you already have Zoom installed on your
phone. Open Zoom, go to join meeting and then input the nine digit code.
Next you will need to enter a password which is 582582 ("lualua"). You will
then be asked to join the meeting again and just follow instructions.
Usually, you will be asked to connect using internet audio. You can use
either your mobile or your land line phone to call into Zoom as well. This
is just like calling an old style conference call. You dial the number and
then wait till you are asked for a code and then enter the nine digit code.
I will list two numbers, one in New York and one in California. The San Jose
number is (669) 900-6833 with the same code 526727187 followed by the
password 582582. the New York number is (929) 205-6099 and the usual code
526727187 and the usual password 582582. If you have Zoom on your computer
you can join by going ! https://zoom.us/j/ebfgbgahg That will take you to
the place where you will need to enter your password which is 582582.
We look forward to having lots of you join us when we talk about favorite
books on Wednesday, September 15 2021 at 8:30 PM eastern daylight time.

FW: [Leadership] September 11, 2001 - Flight 93 Memorial tour with Audio Description

Subject: [Leadership] September 11, 2001 - Flight 93 Memorial tour with Audio Description

 

Dear friends,

 

Along with many of you, I spent some time this morning recalling the horrific events of September 11, 2001 and remembering just where I was when I heard the news. (I was in my office at the National Endowment for the Arts in Washington, DC—my colleagues and I could see the smoke rising from the Pentagon.)

 

In remembrance of 9/11 and, specifically, the crash of Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA, I thought it appropriate to provide a link to the audio described tour of the Flight 93 Memorial that I created for the National Park Service. It’s intended as an accessibility feature for visitors to the site who are blind or have low vision; but, of course, anyone can listen to the tour and get a sense of the Memorial without being there in person. The entire tour is almost two hours long; you’re welcome to listen to all or a part of it at:

All best,

memories of 911

Janet Dickelman
 

The following was sent out by Florida Council of the Blind written by member Anthony Corona.

 

Janet

911 20 years

by Anthony Corona

 

They stood as symbols for our country; two tall and impressive 110-storied buildings at the lower foot of Manhattan. They could be seen for miles from land or approaching by sea. They held thousands of people daily, conducting business around the globe. The Twin Towers were shining examples of American engineering and business. Ironically, they formed an impressive eleven in the city skyline.

 

9/11: the day is forever etched into the fabric of history; Lives were tragically lost, Heroes were born, and the safety illusion of America was forever erased. 20 years ago I still had sight and I rode the Staten Island Ferry daily, watching those impressive towers growing larger over the 30 minutes it takes the ferry to cross NY Harbor.

 

20 Years ago I had a burgeoning career working in Downtown Manhattan. I would ride the ferry every morning, many times preferring to stand out front in the wind of the crossing boat with headphones on, revving myself up for another work day.

 

20  Years ago today time stood still and for the first time in over 100 years of service the ferry stopped mid run and sat in the harbor in horror as hundreds of people aboard stared in shock at one tower rocked from the impact of an airplane. Flames erupted and the smoke furled up and out into the surrounding areas and then…. Screams ripped through the eerie silence as those hundreds of people watched a second plane… aim…. Hit.

 

20 years ago today I stood among the passengers on the Staten Island Ferry, tears silently streaming down my face. The boat sat still for over 20 minutes until an announcement that we would be returning to Staten Island. The engines re-started just as the next layer of horror occurred; the first tower seemed to tremble and sink into itself. The sound was deafening, the smell was smoke and gas and some horrible metallic that actually reminded me of the smell of BLOOD.

 

20 Years ago I thought I was a man, I thought I knew everything. I couldn’t fathom what my eyes were showing me. I broke in many small ways and before I knew it, I was sobbing like the little boy I was in that moment.

 

20 Years ago 4 people I loved never made it home. My cousin a FDNY  member, My best friend’s father who worked on the 68th floor, My very good friend who worked on the 47th floor, and a former manager I worked with when I was in college; all gone in those terrible moments. There wasn’t a single person I knew at the time who couldn’t say the same things.

 

20 Years later I can still hear the roar, smell that horrific stench and, although I lost my sight a few years ago, I still see that second plane. I can still see the first tower fall. I can still hear the screams and sobs.

 

I can never forget. We can never forget.

Every generation has life-altering, changing, and foundation-rocking moments. As the world battles a pandemic, the likes not seen for over 100 years it strikes me these foundation-rocking moments bound us in humanity. These moments remind us of all we have to lose together and sometimes all the greatness we can achieve together. 20 years ago our world was rocked to the core and I was changed from my core. Together we recovered as we will from this dark pandemic; but one of the strongest lessons I relive every day for the last 20 years is that together we can do anything, together we are stronger, together we are family; if only we remember and continue to hold proverbial hands.

Metro Transit - Downtown Saint Paul Survey

Janet Dickelman
 

Hi everyone,

See below.

Please read the information below. I had to paste the link in to my browser.

·          

·         https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MinnesotaRobert 

 

Hello Janet,

 

Metro Transit is reaching out to organizations and businesses in the downtown St. Paul area about potentially relocating routes 3, 16, 62, 67, 75. These routes are currently on either Wabasha or Minnesota streets 

 

Starting in the spring of 2022 and ending in 2025/2026, there will be a series of street construction projects in downtown St. Paul. Wabasha Street will be the first, which will necessitate moving routes 62, 67, and 75 to Minnesota Street to join routes 3 and 16. At the end of the Wabasha construction, these routes will not be moving back, but will remain on Minnesota Street. In 2023, Minnesota Street will undergo construction and these routes will then move to Robert Street. When that construction is complete, Metro Transit will either keep all north/south routes on Robert Street. or return all service back to Minnesota. 

  

Now through Sept.17, we are seeking input to help us understand what is important to our customers, including those who are part of your organization. Metro Transit is providing a variety of opportunities for the public to provide input. To assist you, we’ve put together a packet of materials for you to use:  

·          

·         Link to the survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MinnesotaRobert 

·         Link to the project news page: https://www.metrotransit.org/robert_minnesota_survey 

·         Amplify Metro Transit’s social media post or post your own with proposed copy (attached)

·         Facebook: facebook.com/MetroTransitMN   

·         Instagram: @MetroTransitMN   

·         Twitter: @MetroTransitMN   

·         Include an article in your newsletter or encourage your policy makers to include in their constituent e-newsletters and updates

·         Include a photo to accompany your social post or article  

·         Include a description and map of the proposed corridors/changes (attached)  

 

If you have any additional questions or comments please let me know.  

 

Thank you again for your support on this project!

I am a college student and I am conducting a survey hoping to gain some
insight into the preferred, and non-preferred labels that people with
disabilities normally hear on a daily basis.
The link below will invite you to participate in an anonymous survey that
will allow you to rank 5 different labels that have Been used to describe
peoples with physical limitations.
This survey is not endorsed by any entity, and is only intended to help me
write my paper for my Special Populations Class.

Thank you For your feedback, and please Feel free to pass the link to any
