Happy Birthday National Library Service!

Digital player and book

On Thursday, March 3, the Talking Book Service (TBS) will host an Open House at ICfL from 1-3 pm to celebrate the 80th anniversary of the National Library Service (NLS) which supplies the audio books, magazines and players for TBS to loan to users statewide.

The open house is the beginning of a campaign to raise awareness about  this free service and spread the word about the digital format-a big improvement over cassette tapes!  Digital titles have  excellent sound quality, are easy to use, and can be downloaded from an online database if desired. 

Libraries are an integral component in sharing information about the service with users in their communities who can no longer read standard print.  All types of libraries are welcome to requst a digital player, sample books, and information about TBS.
