The South Dakota State Library Braille and Talking Book Program has established an audio book depository at Your Library’s Name in Your Town.
The depository is available to anyone who has a visual impairment that prevents them from seeing print, a physical disability that prevents holding materials and/or turning the pages, or a learning disability caused by an organic dysfunction.
In order to receive the service, individuals must register with the State Library Braille and Talking Book Program. Registration materials are available at Your Library’s Name.
Once registered, an individual will receive his or her own audio book player. Books can be mailed directly to a participant’s home, or they can be checked out at Your Library’s Name. Prospective patrons can also borrow a digital machine along with books to try listening to a book. Registered patrons can borrow a machine if their player isn’t operating correctly and books if they run short of their own. There is no charge for this service.
