20. Do Public Libraries Have Braille and Talking Books? Why Would Someone Use the Talking Book Library Over Books on Tape from Bookstores?
Some public and private libraries have a "Deposit Collection" of Talking Book Library materials for eligible customers to borrow. Local libraries without a Deposit Collection can contact the Talking Book Library to establish one.
Books-on-tape are very expensive and have often been abridged. Books available through the Talking Book Library are free of charge to people who qualify and include the entire book.
