The Talking Book Program provides free recorded books, magazines, and playback equipment to approximately 15,000 eligible blind, visually impaired, physically disabled and reading disabled Ohio residents.
Talking books are circulated by the Ohio Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled in Cleveland. The Ohio Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled (OLBPD) is part of the Cleveland Public Library. In partnership with the State Library of Ohio Talking Book Program, OLBPD serves as the Regional Library for the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) of the Library of Congress, and administers a free library program of braille and audio materials circulated to eligible borrowers in the State of Ohio by postage-free mail.
If you qualify for the Talking Book Program, the application is available at the library or online from the State Library website.
