About Talking Book Services

Talking Book Services is a free library service from the South Carolina State Library for anyone who has a visual, physical, or print disability that prevents them from holding or reading normal print books.

South Carolina Talking Book Services functions as a regional library of the National Library for the Blind and Print Disabled.

This free library program brings reading materials in digital audio and braille formats straight to the homes of patrons from preschoolers to centenarians. Books on digital cartridge, digital talking-book players, and braille books are sent to patrons via the U.S. mail at no cost to users. People who sign up with the program also have the option of downloading books and magazines over the internet to their personal devices in audio or braille format.

You (reader advisors) are so, so good.  You have always been incredibly easy to work with and we have never felt we had to work through any red tape to get what we needed.  That is rare. I don't know how you do it, but you sure have blessed our family and made my son's learning difference a little easier to deal with. Thank you, thank you!
