New Hampshire State Library
About Us - Departments - Talking Book Services

The Talking Books Program exists to meet the reading needs and interests of New Hampshire residents who are physically unable to see, handle or process printed material comfortably.

Talking Book Services provides library materials to over 2,000 New Hampshire residents and lends over 70,000 audio and braille books each year.

The Talking Books Blog is the way to keep up with the latest information from the Talking Book Library.

Who's Eligible?
Anyone with a vision problem, a grasping problem, or an information-processing problem that does not affect intelligence. Examples of physical problems that may be eligible.

Institutions and agencies whose clientele may include those who are blind, low vision, or physically disabled are eligible for an institutional account. An institutional account allows an agency to check out materials and keep equipment for demonstrations and group activities, or to loan to clients who may be out of books or would like to try it before applying for services.
