RNIB Talking Books now free – because books change lives
Thursday, 3 December 2015
RNIB Talking Books is celebrating its 80th birthday by making the service completely free for all blind and partially sighted children and adults in the UK. Every year RNIB Talking Books provides more than 1million audiobooks to people with sight loss.
The children and young people you support can choose from over 2,500 fiction and non-fiction titles. Whether it’s the popular Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Horrid Henry books, young adult series like The Hunger Games or Twilight, or fun non-fiction titles like Horrible Histories, there really is something for everyone.
Visit RNIB Library to browse the collection. Talking Books are available as digital downloads via RNIB Overdrive, as DAISY CD or on USB. Please note RNIB Overdrive is only available to young people aged 16+.
To borrow titles on behalf of a pupil, you request the titles in their name and add your details as a guarantor. Full details are provided when you register, and you can also call our helpline on 0303 123 9999 for further guidance.
