Thank you, Joan - this offer was very kind of you. Sorry it has taken me so
long to get back to you.
At this moment, I do not have the funding to send your library free copies
of the Children's Stories and videos for your review. But that does not
mean things cannot be worked out later :-)
The materials are not very expensive, and perhaps other libraries might be
interested in purchasing some of our materials. That will help us gather
funds to continue printing the books.
How do I contact other libraries? I barely know where to begin!
In regards to the computer program, the SignWriter shareware is available
for free on our web site, so your library could have the computer program
right now, if you have access to the web.
Many thanks again for your offer of assistance -
