Free Bookshare in PA, NY and GA

I was excited to see the news about Bookshare being free for all qualifying individuals with no age restrictions and I wondering if there was something we could do to help get other states added to the list. Reading is not just for students and getting access to the powerful tools available from Bookshare would be a great bonus for qualifying adults. Recently my daughter's girl scout troop created some audio books for a local nursing home so the residents could share some popular kid's books with their grandchildren when they visit. Just wondering if there was anything we could do to help increase the number of states included?

Vanessa Wai, Benetech/Bookshare Communities Manager, indicated that Bookshare is having conversations with all state libraries. It is up to the state libraries to determine if Bookshare is something they want to provide for their patrons.
