Answer

Pinellas Talking Book Library

The Pinellas Talking Book Library's mission is to encourage and support reading by providing free library services to residents for whom conventional print is a barrier.

The Pinellas Talking Book Library is administered locally through the Pinellas Public Library Cooperative.

A free service to residents of all ages who are unable to read standard print material due to visual, physical or learning disabilities whether permanent or temporary. The Pinellas Talking Book Library provides recorded, Braille and large-print books and magazines as well as a collection of descriptive videos and playaways.

The Pinellas Talking Book Library is part of a nationwide network of cooperating libraries serving people who have difficulty using or reading regular print. Books and magazines in audio formats and Braille, plus compatible playback equipment from the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), Library of Congress, are loaned free of charge. All materials are sent to clients and returned to the library via postage-free mail. The Library collection has thousands of recreational reading titles to choose from in fiction and non-fiction, pre-school to adult. Click HERE to learn more about NLS.
