Welcome, everyone, to the

Washington Council of the Blind (WCB)

Whether you are visually impaired, legally blind, or totally blind... “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” -- Helen Keller

July 2015 News

Library saved

Thank you to everyone who called and wrote their representatives. Your advocacy paid off.

As we hoped, the Legislature approved the proposed $1 recording fee increase to support State Library operations. This fee also creates a much more permanent solution to prevent continued shortfalls. In addition, the Legislature provided $1.5 million to continue the Microsoft IT Academy.

How do we feel about our library? See for yourself: YouTube clip features many folks from the Council.
