Resources for the visually impaired

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Here at Resources for Libraries and Lifelong Learning (RL&LL) we recently had several interlibrary loan requests for materials in braille.  If you have patrons who need audiobooks on CD, large print, or other resources because they are visually impaired, interlibrary loan can help.

Additional resources are also available at these libraries:

Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL)

The Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library provides books and magazines in two formats: braille and audio recorded books. The library also lends audio-described DVDs and equipment.

National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS)

These libraries serve the blind, as well as those with impaired vision, physical limitations, and reading disabilities.
