Talking Books: Home



Talking Book Services resumed mailing books to patrons effective June 4, 2020.  If you have been holding onto your books, you can now send them back.

We began answering incoming calls Monday, June 8, 2020.  

Staff are practicing hygiene protocols to prevent spread of Covid-19 when handling books:

  • Incoming books are quarantined for 7 days before handling and checking them in
  • We are wearing masks when working with the books
  • We are also wearing gloves
  • We are practicing social distancing in the office of at least 6 feet
  • We encourage our patrons to follow recommended guidelines to stay safe and health.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
