Welcome to the Talking Book Center

The Northeast Georgia Talking Book Center provides free library services for patrons with visual, physical, and reading disabilities. The Center loans books and magazines in audio and Braille formats, as well as the necessary players. Books and players are mailed back and forth at no cost to the patron.

The recorded books, players, and catalogs are provided by the Library of Congress' National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Operating funds are provided by the State of Georgia, and the Center is housed in and administered by the Athens-Clarke County Library.

We serve 22 counties: Banks, Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Gwinnett, Habersham, Hancock, Hart, Jackson, Jasper, Madison, Morgan, Newton, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Putnam, Rabun, Stephens, Walton, and White.
