Talking Books

Illinois Talking Book Outreach Center logo

At the Illinois Talking Book Outreach Center (ITBOC), we provide library service to Illinois residents who are unable to read print due to a visual or physical impairment. Accessible materials (digital audio and braille books and magazines) are conveniently mailed to and from our patrons wherever they reside, and the program is tax supported so there is never any out-of-pocket expense for postage or materials.

Talking Book programs are available nationwide through a network of libraries and service organizations administered by the Library of Congress through the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
