Free Books on Tape

Who is Eligible and How Do I get Started?

My father-in-law who had wet macular degeneration used the Free Books on Tape program for many years. During the cold winter months in Wisconsin it was a great source of enjoyment as well as education for him.

Many of our conversations included discussions on his most recent "read" as he provided us with details of the American Revolutionary War or the farming practices of Indonesia. He could dive into Civil War history or escape to Thailand all without ever having to leave the house.

National Library Service Talking Books
