Signing Off on a WTBBL Application

You may have been or will be approached to sign a certification of eligibility for a Washington Talking Book & Braille Library Application for Free Library Service.  Individuals are instructed to have a doctor of medicine, doctor of osteopathy, ophthalmologist, optometrist, nurse, therapist, or a professional staff member of a hospital, institution, social welfare agency, or a library certify their eligibility.   This is something that we CAN do.

Before signing the Certification of Eligibility, you must ask which condition they claim.  You can sign off if they indicate Blindness, Visual Impairment, Physical Disability, or Deafness and Blindness.  You cannot certify Reading Disability as federal law mandates that only doctors of medicine or osteopathy are allowed to certify cases of reading disability.

Because the application requires a professional staff member, applicants may have to schedule a meeting with a branch librarian to get their application signed in some of our medium or small library buildings.

Any questions?  Please contact Terry Beck, x7016.
