Welcome to the Braille and Talking Book Library

• About Us

Do you enjoy a good book, but are no longer able to read small print? People who are unable to use standard print material due to blindness, a visual or physical disability, or a reading disability qualify for this free service through BTBL. Schools and facilities that have eligible students or clients are also welcome!

You do not need to be legally blind to use our services -- if standard print has become difficult for you, a friend, or a family member, please fill out an application or call 1-800-992-9012 for more information.
