Talking Book Library


Providing free recorded books to visually and physically impaired patrons in the area.


* Stop in to see what the equipment looks like - it can be sent to your home for free.

The Traverse Area District Library (TADL) Talking Book Library provides qualified people with visual and
physical handicaps with best-sellers, mysteries, westerns, biographies, how-to books and other types
of materials found in a public library.  The only difference is that the books are digitally recorded on
cartridges or printed in Braille and mailed to patrons' homes through the regular U.S. postal service.                                   
Just like standard print books, these publications are unabridged (not condensed) and contain all of the
information found in the print version - right down to the book jacket.  And best of all, this service is FREE -
there is not even a charge to mail materials to or from the library.
You do not need to be legally blind to use our services.  If standard print has become
difficult for you, a friend, or a family member, please call
  TADL's Talking Book Library service is available to residents of Grand Traverse,
Antrim, Benzie, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee and Wexford counties.
Our application can be found online at:
This program is made possible by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. in conjunction with the Michigan Commission for the Blind's Braille and Talking Book Library and the Traverse Area District Library and its supporters.
