Blind/Visually Impaired/Physically Handicapped

Talking Book Service
Birchard Public Library is a cooperating library with The State Library of Ohio's Talking Book Department. Through this service, recorded books, magazines, and playback equipment are loaned free of charge to the blind or physically handicapped patron. Application may be made through the Outreach Department at 419-334-7101, ext. 1190.

Audiobooks are available in CD and MP3 formats. These are available for check out from the library. The patron supplies the player. Downloadable material is available through the Clevnet Digital Library with a Clevnet member library card.

These are hand held battery-operated players with pre-loaded books. Plug in a set of earphones and they are ready to play.
