Talking Books

North Dakota State Library Talking Books offers an array of services for citizens of North Dakota who are unable to read standard print materials because of a visual, physical, or reading disability.

The Talking Books program provides patrons with free access to talking books and magazines. The Talking Books program is administered by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), a division of the Library of Congress.

I Cannot Live Without Books

In celebrating 85 years of the Talking Book program, patrons can participate in the "I Cannot Live Without Books" reading program. Patrons can access the reading guide catalog, or request the guide to be emailed or mailed to them. The challenge is to read 10 books from the list and return you completed reading log by May 31, 2016 to be entered into the grand prize drawing. For more information please call 1-800-843-9948.
