Talking Books are a free public library service for the visually, physically, and reading disabled. The Northeast Georgia Talking Book Center is part of the Athens-Clarke County Library and the Georgia Library for Accessible Services.

We have one standard player, one advanced player, and one digital book to use as demonstration models. You are welcome to come by the Athens-Clarke County Library and try them out. We will also be setting up presentations in libraries all over our service area, in case you cannot get to Athens. Watch this blog and our summer "Insight" for the dates of these presentations.
We believe we will have players to start distributing to patrons by the beginning of next year. By then, we should have a nice collection of digital books for you to choose from. The first players will be given to veterans, as required by law. After all interested veterans receive a digital player, we will give them out through a lottery system. If you would like to have your name entered into the lottery pool, please let us know. (Patrons who returned surveys indicating they would like a digital machine have already been placed on the list).
If you have any questions, please call us at 1-800-531-2063.
