Friends of Libraries for Deaf Action is a source for libraries to find information about the deaf community and library services for the deaf. FOLDA offers The Red Notebook which is a loose-leaf binder containing fact sheets, library reprints, announcements and other printed informational materials that are related to both deaf and library issues. It is designed to help build communication among individuals and groups within the deaf community by letting them know about existing products, programs, and services of interest. It is also intended to unify deaf community participation in local activities of libraries, their related friends and foundation groups. The focus is on assisting libraries in providing cost-effective and efficient library and information services to these consumers in an unbiased fashion. To contact FOLDA (Library for Deaf Action)
