The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) of the Library of Congress announces its program to distribute digital talking-book players to service members who can no longer read or handle printed materials.

Readers may enjoy bestsellers, biographies, self-help and other fiction and nonfiction works, as well as a variety of magazines. The materials are delivered by mail at no charge to patrons through more than 100 state and local libraries that make up the NLS network. In addition, NLS patrons may download audiobooks and magazines over the Internet by using the Braille and Audio Reading Download.

For more information about the NLS program for institutions serving veterans, call 1-800-424-8567.
