NLS to pilot braille eReader

For the past four years, NLS had been steadily working toward providing braille eReaders to its patrons. Historically the only options for patrons who wanted to read books in braille have been to receive the books in hardcopy through the mail, or to purchase a third-party braille display for reading electronic braille files downloaded from BARD—an expense many could not afford.

Soon, there will be a third option. This summer NLS will launch the pilot of the NLS Braille eReader. This is a 20-cell braille display, which will be provided to participating NLS patrons to read BRF files. Other features of the eReader include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi capability, a USB port, and SD-card storage access. Patrons will have the option to either download books from BARD to the device or order BRF books on USB cartridge from their network library. The pilot will start with four libraries and will solicit feedback on all aspects of the pilot devices from participating patrons. Stay tuned for more information regarding this exciting news.

Minibibliographies available

Looking for books on specific topics? NLS offers a wide variety of minibibliographies on its website at https://go.usa.gov/xdBbf External. The latest addition, “Rosa Parks (1913–2005),” highlights books on the pioneering civil rights activist and was released in conjunction with a Library of Congress exhibit showcasing Parks’s personal papers. Other minibibliographies cover subjects from baseball and gardening to financial planning and decluttering, and all provide direct links for downloading every listed title from BARD.

New Yorker now available in audio

The New Yorker, a weekly magazine that mixes journalism and essays with fiction and poetry, will return to the list of magazines available in audio from NLS in February 2020. Patrons interested in reading it can download it from BARD or contact their local cooperating network library to subscribe.

Magazines of the Month

Whether you’re interested in sports, current events, cooking, computers, parenting, or even cats, the NLS magazine program has you covered. But if the regular NLS magazine offerings (found in the bottom of this page) aren’t catching your interest, consider contacting your cooperating network library to subscribe to Magazine of the Month, a sampler that sends you issues of twelve different audio magazines throughout the year. The NLS Music Section also provides a similar service with the Quarterly Music Magazine program, which pulls from a broad variety of music magazines to cover everything from opera to country.

Newsstand

The following announcement may be of interest to readers. The National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled reserves the right to publish announcements selectively, as space permits. The item mentioned below is not part of the NLS program, and its listing does not imply endorsement or support.

Accessible product advice hotline available

Patrons looking for advice on accessible technology products for personal and business use may find the Accessible Products Hotline operated by the William L. Hudson BVI Workforce Innovation Center helpful. Hotline professionals can answer questions on what products would be appropriate to purchase for specific needs and how to operate existing products. For more information, visit www.workforceforall.com/Accessible-Products-Hotline External or call 316-252-2500.

Books for Adults

Books listed in this issue of Talking Book Topics were recently sent to cooperating libraries. The complete collection contains a wide range of fiction and nonfiction books, including biographies, classics, westerns, mysteries, romances, and others.

Registered users may also immediately download all titles and magazines from the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) service at https://nlsbard.loc.gov. The free BARD Mobile app is available from the App Store, Google Play, and Amazon’s Appstore for reading talking books on your personal smart phone or tablet. To learn more about the collection or to sign up for BARD, contact your local cooperating library.

Books within the headings Adult Fiction and Adult Nonfiction are listed alphabetically by subject category, author last name, and title. For example the title War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy would be listed in Adult Fiction under the Classics subject category and by the last name Tolstoy.

Note: A notice may appear immediately following the book description to indicate occurrences of violence, strong language, or descriptions of sex. The word “some” before any of these terms indicates an occasional or infrequent occurrence, as in “some strong language.” Commercial audiobooks for which NLS does not have access to the print book may display the notice “unrated,” which means that the book may or may not contain violence, strong language, or descriptions of sex.
