Description:
Access Services administers the Talking Books Program and Books by Mail Service. The Books-By-Mail service makes available books and other printed material to library users of all ages who are homebound or unable to visit their local library due to physical disability. Standard and large print formats are available, as well as videos with descriptive narration.
 
 
The Talking Book service provides recorded and Braille reading materials, including books and magazines on tape, to individuals with visual or physical disabilities. The service is free, but an application is required. Special cassette players and headphones are also required, and are provided at no charge. Items are provided by the Library of Congress’ National Library Service, and are sent and returned via postage-free mailings.
