Talking Books

Talking Books is a program administered by the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (Milwaukee Public Library System).  To use the collection, you will need to be a registered user of the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. 

You may call 266-6314 or stop by any Madison library to request an application, or print an application and mail it to:

Wisconsin Regional Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped 
813 West Wells Street 
Milwaukee, WI 53233-1436

Once the application is processed, you will be issued a 4-track player necessary to play Talking Books - Talking Books do not work on standard cassette players - and you will receive a catalog of titles that can be ordered from Milwaukee. All postage free.

To inquire about the Talking Books program you can call them directly at (800) 242-8822, contact our Home Services staff at 266-6314, or in person at Central Library’s help desk.
