Talking books

What is it?

Eligible Ohio residents who are unable to read print books can receive free recorded books, magazines, and playback equipment delivered to their homes free of charge.  This service is provided through the State Library of Ohio and the Ohio Library for the Blind and Physically Disabled.  More information can be found at this website.

Who is eligible for this service?

If you are unable to read a standard print book, or are not able to hold or turn the pages of books, you probably qualify to receive this service.  Those with reading disabilities such as dyslexia may also qualify.
