Maybe new to West Virginia, but...

Recordings for the Blind & Dyslexic, formerly Recordings for the Blind, has been around for more than half a century, and has an excellent reputation (yes, it's one of the charities my wife & I donate to).

What is fairly new, it turns out, is that the nearest regional unit of the national organization, which was founded in 1958 and covered Virginia and the Carolinas, was renamed in 2004 with its scope broadened to include West Virginia.

Certainly not to detract from the story. RFB&D seems to be an efficient charity (partly because much of the reading is also done by volunteers), and so far I've heard only good about them.
