Special Delivery also takes applications for the free federal Talking Book Program of the Library of Congress, created for individuals who can no longer read or hold print materials. Special Delivery distributes Talking Book players as part of the federal government’s Talking Book Program administered by the State Library of Ohio. Two regional libraries for the blind deliver the actual recorded books.

Descriptive Videos for the Visually Impaired

Descriptive Videos help visually disabled or blind individuals to enjoy and understand movies by enhancing the visual action and the movie’s dialogue with a voiceover which describes and explains the scene.

Share with Your Group

Special Delivery librarians will again be available to speak to groups and organizations about Special Delivery services when pandemic conditions change.

Also, they can register qualified individuals for Library-by-Mail services.
