The Music Section of the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS), Library of Congress, includes more than 25,000 titles including braille and large-print scores and recorded instructional materials about music and musicians. It is the largest accessible collection of its kind in the world. Music-related magazines in audio and braille are also available. While patrons receive most NLS services through the network of cooperating libraries, NLS music materials circulate directly to patrons from the NLS headquarters in Washington, DC.
Any person eligible for NLS service is also eligible for NLS music services. Patrons already registered with a cooperating network library should contact the NLS Music Section directly either via phone (800-424-8567 ext. 2) or via email ([email protected]). Eligible individuals who are not yet registered with a network library can receive more information by calling 888-NLS-READ (888-657-7323) or visiting the Apply for NLS Service page.
Though phone and email are the most efficient means of contact, the Music Section may also be contacted by mail at:
