Summary
A program of public events at the Library marked the new partnership between the Center for the Book and the National Literary Society of the Deaf. The Center for the Book, NLSD, Friends of Libraries for Deaf Action and the Library of Congress Deaf Association sponsored the program. "The Center for the Book is extremely pleased to welcome the National Literary Society of the Deaf as a reading promotion partner," said John Cole, Center for the Book director. "The purpose of the partnership program, which was established in 1987 and now includes more than 80 nonprofit organizations and government offices or agencies, is to share information - and on occasion join forces - in promoting books, literacy, reading and libraries." Speakers included NLSD President Ricardo Lopez; Robert R. Davila, president of Gallaudet University; Ginnie Cooper, chief librarian of the D.C. Public Library; Nancy Bloch, chief executive officer of the National Association of the Deaf; and Diana Gates, reference and instruction librarian at Gallaudet University Library.

The presenters were WETA's Karen Kenton, film executive producer; Ferne Barrow, WETA-TV26 outreach director; and filmmaker Lawrence Hott, Florentine Films/Hott Productions.
