Good Books and Service Too!  Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped

LBPH Individuals who are unable to read standard print or hold a book may continue their love of reading through a national network of braille and talking-book libraries throughout the United States. Patrons of these libraries may browse the collections of braille and audiobooks provided by the Library of Congress talking-book program. Eligible adults and children may drop in and pick up their selections or receive them at no cost through the mail. Hundreds of fiction and nonfiction titles are available. Bestsellers, classics, westerns, romances, biographies, and political commentaries can be found on the shelves. Popular magazines such as US News and World Report and People Weekly are also available. The  books and the easy-to-use playback equipment are provided on loan free of charge. There is something for every eligible individual at your local braille and talking-book library!
