Is someone you know having trouble reading standard print? The Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL) provides Braille and recorded books and playback equipment for Wisconsin residents who for any physical reason cannot read standard print.
As part of the National Library Service of the Library of Congress, the WTBBL circulates digital books, recorded cassettes, brailled materials, and playback equipment provided by the federal government, including materials about Wisconsin or by Wisconsin authors, as well as audio-described videotapes and DVDs.
The WTBBL provides service from its location in Milwaukee Public Library’s Central Library. WTBBL provides audio-described DVDs and free subscriptions to 60 magazines and 300 newspapers from across the nation. Access to Wisconsin and national newspapers is available through the National Federation of the Blind’s NFB-NEWSLINE® service. The list of available newspapers includes 15 from Wisconsin.
