Important Notice: The Talking Pages library ceased lending audio books following the November 30, 2013, mailing.

 

Talking Pages provided audio books to visually impaired users for over ten years, and we have been proud to be of assistance to this community. We discontinued our service chiefly because new technology has reduced the attractiveness of books on CD or tape delivered via the mail. Increasingly, visually impaired people are able to download audio books to MP3 players via the Internet. Many local libraries provide this instant download service for free to residents. Unfortunately, Talking Pages is not in the position to transition to this newer technology.

We recommend that any users looking for an audio lending library consider looking at the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (http://www.loc.gov/nls/index.html). In addition to offering audio books by mail that must be played on specialized devices, this service recently announced the availability of audio downloads to Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch) (see http://www.loc.gov/nls/newsreleases/archive/2013-09-24.html).

We are very grateful to all of our donors who supported Talking Pages with generous donations of audio books and cash. Pursuant to our nonprofit agreement with the Internal Revenue Service, we have donated our small cash account to another nonprofit organization and are donating our library to a nonprofit organization that supports educational scholarships.
