Talking Book and Braille Service

The Nebraska Library Commission’s Talking Book and Braille Service (TBBS) provides free audiobooks, audio magazines, and braille through the mail or through digital download to individuals with a visual or physical condition, or a reading disability that limits the use of regular print. This service is also available for schools and other facilities such as nursing homes, hospitals, and senior centers.

The Talking Book and Braille Service is part of a nationwide network of cooperating libraries headed by the National Library Service (NLS), a division of the Library of Congress. The collection consists of books and magazines, and playback equipment is provided on a long-term loan free of charge. Materials and equipment are delivered and returned through the mail at no cost to users.
