Blumberg Fund Set Up to Aid Visually Handicapped

To the numerous list of
major causes which have
been on his philanthropic
list, Louis Blumberg has
added the visually im-
paired.
Blumberg this week an-
nounced the establishment
of the Philip Slomovitz Low
Vision Assistance Fund to
be operated through the
Oakland County Library for
the Blind and Physically
Handicapped at the Far-
mington Hills Public Li-
brary.
This fund, which he
named in honor of
Slomovitz as an expression
of friendship, will provide
low vision cameras for the
visually handicapped and
will provide means to sup-
plement the computerized
facilities at the library.
Carole Hund, super-
visor of the Library for
the Blind and Physically
Handicapped, welcomed
the fund as means of im-
plementing the needs
that are hampered by the
minimal
assistance
available from Federal
and Oakland County
funds.
Among the services of-
fered to the visually handi-

capped are recordings of
novels, biographies, chil-
dren's books and best-
sellers. These services are
free to certified blind or
physically handicapped
Oakland residents.
Persons who wish to avail
themselves of the service
must be blind or have a vis-
ual or other physical hand-
icap that would preclude
their using regular reading
materials. A professional,
such as a physician or social
worker, must certify the
disability.
More than 10,000 record-
ings of books are available.

call the library, 553-0300.
Welcoming the urgently
needed support, otherwise
unavailable, Miss Hund
pointed to the current needs
of the Library for the Blind.
She stated:
"Many of the Subregional
Libraries in the United
States and several in
Michigan have been using,
with great success, com-
puters as a means of storing
information about their
readers and then retrieving
information for assistance
in book selection and circu-
lation of materials.
"The National Library
Service is producing a
software package that can
be implemented on a. mic-
rocomputer that will be
capable of several processes
including circulation,
machine inventory and
interface with National
Library Service computer
system. Software is nor-
mally very expensive but
the NLS software package
will be free of charge to net-
work libraries.
"We will still have to
purchase a compatible
16-bit micro-computer in
order to use the software..
At present we have no
funds available for this
purpose.
"Good service is the goal
of our library and I am con-
vinced we will give better
service with the help of
computers. Computers will
not replace staff. We believe
in personalized library serv-
ice — the computer will re-
lieve staff of much of the
clerical work and allow us
more time to confer with
readers about books, mate-
rials and problems
encountered.

Israeli Pull-Back
Worries British

LONDON (JTA) — Con-
cern that the partial Israel
withdrawal in Lebanon will
cause Lebanon's de facto
partition has been voiced by
the British government.
A statement issued by the
Foreign Office says that if
the Israeli decision to make
a partial withdrawal is in-
tended as a first stage in a
complete withdrawal it
would be welcomed by Brit-
ain. But if it amounted to a
de facto partition of Leba-
non, then it would under-
mine the stability of the
region and should be
avoided at all costs,

for personal use.
"Technological advances
are being made every day, it
is important that we are
able to show our readers the
newest types of equipment
available to help them in
their search for a means of
reading and writing inde-
pendently."
