Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind
Hugh Green Foundation has committed to making a gift of $300,000 over three years to the RNZFB to upgrade their library to digital.
The upgrade has been a major project for the Foundation transforming the Library to a state-of-the-art digital service. All of the library’s borrowers are now using the new DAISY player and receiving books and magazines on DAISY CDs. With the infrastructure now in place and over 6,000 titles available in the digital library, the project is almost complete. The only downside they can see is managing to record books at the same speed their members are reading them!
Hugh Green Group staff recently took part in the 'Bake a Difference' challenge for blind week. The staff put on a fantastic spread and raised over $200 to help the the Blind Foundation carry on their amazing work!
