book 'cartridges' which hold the entire book digitally
Stay up to date and connected to the world. Enjoy the latest bestsellers, history books, westerns, and mysteries, even if you are unable to use regular print materials. The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), part of the Library of Congress, administers a free nationwide program that loans recorded books and magazines, as well as the equipment needed to read them, to U.S. residents whose low vision, blindness, or physical disability makes reading regular print difficult.
NLS provides service through a network of cooperating libraries in each state. To find contact information for our cooperating libraries, please visit www.loc.gov/nls and select your state. Or call Alice O'Reilly at (202) 707-0538 with any questions about the NLS free reading program for blinded veterans and active-duty service members.
