Your library can offer free talking books and magazines for any one with visual or physical disabilities.  This is another service available through the Nebraska Library Commission.  The talking book machines can be requested at the library and then audio books can be ordered from the Library Commission in Lincoln and returned at your convenience.  If you would like to try this free service or know anybody who would like to try it, please contact us at the library in person, by phone, or by e-mail (  We would be glad to assist.  There is a brief application to fill out, mostly about your interests.

There is also another service that some of you might want to check into that I just read about.  I haven’t researched it yet, but it sounds good.  It is Radio Talking Books, partnered with NET.  They offer larger newspapers read to you over the internet as well as audio books and magazines.  You can check it out at and contact them for more information and application.
