What could be better than giving back the ability to read and enjoy stories to veterans who are living with vision loss? Not much! The National Library Service (NLS) and the Library of Congress have teamed up to create the Braille and Talking Book Program.
Any honorably discharged Veteran who is living with blindness, low vision, or a disability that keeps them from reading traditional print can access talking books, audio magazines, and digital talking-book players for free. The Program mails participants the materials they select online; the NLS has an impressive catalog of best-sellers to classics.
For more information: Call the National Library Service at 1-888-NLS-READ (1-888-657-7323) or visit them on the web.
Please contact San Diego Center for the Blind if you require assistance. We offer several services for people living with visual impairments.
