Braille and Talking Books


The Andrew Heiskell Library, a branch of the New York Public Library, provides talking books and magazines and braille for people who are blind, visually impaired, or are otherwise physically unable to read standard print.
The library serves residents who live in New York City and Long Island.

The Library also operates a books-by-mail program that delivers thousands of recorded and braille titles postage-free.
