Illinois Talking Book Program Will Remain Open

The Voice of Vision program, which provides talking books to visual or physical impaired residents in 12 counties, including dozens in Geneva and Batavia, has received funding to remain open for at least another year.

The DuPage Library System, which operated Voices of Vision in Geneva, and the Illinois State Library have signed an agreement to keep the center open thanks to a grant from the federal Library Services and Technology Act.

The center was slated to close after July this year because it had not received 97 percent of its 2010 grant from the state, which was worth about $450,000.
