Find Your Library

NLS serves its patrons through a network of cooperating libraries. Your local network library can help you sign up for free special-format library service, assist with issues concerning equipment, suggest and locate titles of interest to you, and help you receive access to the BARD (Braille and Audio Reading Download) website and app. All of these interactions can be done remotely, via telephone, fax, postage-free mail, or e-mail.

All network libraries provide access to NLS-produced braille and talking books and magazines, which they circulate via postage-free mail. Some libraries have additional collections, including large-print books and described DVDs. Contact your library today to find out what services they can offer you.

You may call 1-888-NLS-READ (1-888-657-7323) and be connected with the library serving your area or use the list below to find a library serving your area.

Please note that due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many network libraries are working with limited capacity. Please call or email your network library for updated operating hours before visiting in person.
