Talking Books: Home


     Out of an abundance of caution, and in the interest of safety, the Talking Book Library will cease mailing books, effective immediately (March 27, 2020).  We advise you to hold onto the books you have now until the current COVID-19 pandemic resolves.
     We are still receiving calls and emails, but because most staff are telecommuting we are not answering live calls.  You may still submit requests, address changes, and other account updates, but call backs and email replies will be limited.

Here are some important things to remember:

  • Please DO NOT SHARE BOOKS.  We usually recommend against book sharing with other users, but now it is especially important.
  • If you want to help someone with downloading books, PLEASE maintain proper social distancing.

We very much appreciate the gravity of this decision.  It was not an easy one to make.  But we all need to do our part.  Operations will resume as soon as we can ensure the safety of all concerned.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.
