The Difference We Make

Senior woman wearing headphones smiles

"I am writing on behalf of a client who receives DAISY books in the mail. I cannot begin to tell you what a difference you are all making in her life. Losing her sight so quickly had her depressed and angry. Hearing her laugh and having to rush to tell me which books arrived in the mail is like interacting with another woman." - Caregiver

"The library gives me the opportunity to read what my classmates are reading. I feel included and not different from anyone else. It helps other students accept who I am and makes the concept of having a blind classmate less scary." - CNIB client
