Talking Book and Braille Library introduces ‘duplication on demand’
The NYS Talking Book and Braille Library has started to provide “duplication on demand”! How does duplication on demand change things?
No more waitlists, as TBBL will have unlimited copies of each title!
No more waiting for books to come from Ohio, TBBL will have everything in New York.
You can get multiple titles – even a whole series – on each cartridge instead of juggling a separate cartridge for each book. (You will still be able to choose which one to listen to and it will still remember your place in each one).
Most members will be assigned either 5 or 10 titles per cartridge, depending on how many they usually check out. You will be able to get up to 3 of these multi-title cartridges. You can request to adjust this but not until after you get your first one.
The New York State Talking Book and Braille Library (TBBL) is a free library service for eligible residents of upstate New York who are unable to use standard print materials due to a visual, physical or reading disability. Receive free audio books, magazines, and newspapers by mail or listen on your own devices through the BARD mobile app. Visit the NYSL website to learn more: https://www.nysl.nysed.gov/tbbl/
