Braille and Talking Book Library

November 27, 2019

The Braille and  Talking Book Library is a branch of the California State Library which cooperates with the Library of Congress, National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS). The books and players are provided by the Library of Congress. The California State Library directly administers the program in Northern California.

Services are free to all eligible readers. Books (and the equipment needed to use the library’s audio books) are mailed postage-free to and from library patrons. There are no fines or fees for overdue or lost materials.

Eligible readers include Northern California residents who cannot read standard print material in the usual manner due to visual, physical, or organic dysfunction. You must obtain a signature from a competent authority (doctor, etc.) confirming your inability to read standard print material.

Each patron is assigned a reader advisor to help with his/her library service. Reader advisors can help with book orders, author or subject requests, machine problems, placing a temporary hold on service, and much more!
