Does your vision make traditional print a challenge for reading? Consider the Talking Book Service: This audio library book service from the Idaho State Library is completely free to people who have trouble reading traditional printed material due to visible impairment or a physical disability which contributes to a print disability. Those who are blind or who have perceptual or reading disabilities are eligible. This includes autism, dyslexia, inability to hold a book due to difficulties with hands or arms, and other conditions which make using a traditional book difficult. TBS provides the machine and audio book and/or magazine titles (selected by the user), mailed directly to their residence. Returning the materials is as simple as turning over the mailing card and putting the cartridge in the mail. There is no cost to the user for mailing. Please come in or contact us at the library and we will help you sign up for this awesome service!
