Program National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped

That All May Read

NLS is a free braille and talking book library service for people with temporary or permanent low vision, blindness, or a physical disability that prevents them from reading or holding the printed page. Through a national network of cooperating libraries, NLS offers books the way you want them: in braille or audio formats, mailed to your door for free, or instantly downloadable.

NLS works to ensure that all may read by providing eligible patrons access to NLS materials regardless of age, economic circumstances, or technical expertise. Explore the tabs using the menu on the left. Share the gift of reading, and spread the word about NLS so that all may read.
