So That All May Read

March 13, 1998


Frank Kurt Cylke, director of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped at The Library of Congress, will speak at The Catholic University of America at 7 p.m., Friday, April 24. His talk, titled "That All May Read," will be held in Herzfeld Auditorium in Hannan Hall on campus. The event commemorates the 9th Annual Elizabeth W. Stone Lecture.

Mr. Cylke is a member of Catholic University's School of Library and Information Science faculty and has led the university's annual Institute on Federal Library Resources for 23 years.

He is highly regarded for his conception, development and promotion of cooperative international programs of services to blind and physically handicapped readers. During his tenure with the Library Service for the Blind, Mr. Cylke has built a comprehensive and well-balanced recorded collection. His efforts have resulted in voice-indexed reference material, including The Concise American Heritage Dictionary, published by Houghton Mifflin, which allows blind people access to a recorded reference work not previously available.

The Stone lecture is named after Dean Emerita Elizabeth W. Stone, and is free and open to the public. For more information, call 202-319-5085.
