What is NLS?

The National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS), Library of Congress, is a free library service for U.S. residents and Americans living abroad who are blind, have low vision, or have a physical or reading disability that prevents them from using regular print materials.

NLS offers readers audio books and magazines, braille books and magazines, music materials, a digital library called BARD, and the BARD Mobile app.
