HarperCollins Canada wins CNIB award for advancing library services

Last week, the Canadian National Institute for the Blind named HarperCollins Canada the winner of the 2011 Dr. Dayton M. Forman Memorial Award. Established in 1996 in memory of a longstanding CNIB volunteer, the prize recognizes outstanding leadership to advance library and information services for people living with vision loss or print disabilities.

HarperCollins Canada and the CNIB partnered in 2009 to help blind and partially sighted Canadians access a broader selection of books in alternative formats like audio and braille. Since then, HarperCollins Canada has supplied the CNIB Library with its entire backlist of audio books and has offered new items at low prices to help the CNIB Library buy more current, in-demand titles.

Chair of the CNIB Library Board Betty Nobel commended HarperCollins Canada for “trailblazing contributions and compassionate commitment to helping CNIB further advance its mission.”
