Format Change -- September 6, 2016

As of September 6, 2016, we will no longer be circulating cassettes (RCs). The National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) announced a four-year process to withdraw and convert RC titles to digital format at all of the talking book state libraries, which began in 2012. Thousands of titles have been converted. Feel free to contact us if you discover a title is missing from a series or other inconsistency. This remains an evolving project, as some older books are unsuitable for conversion and must be re-recorded or, in some cases, removed from the conversion list. We hope you continue to enjoy our digital books on cartridges as well as books in downloadable format from the Braille and Audio Reading Download service of NLS (BARD).
