Xavier Society for the Blind is pleased to announce that their conversion to digital talking book format is now complete and they have added some popular titles on cartridge to their library. These books can be played on the talking book machines provided by the National Library Service.

With an existing catalog of over 1,500 braille and audio titles, Xavier Society for the Blind provides inspirational, spiritual and religious reading materials free of charge in braille and audio to the blind and visually impaired community of faithful. One of their primary objectives is to choose new titles which will appeal to a larger audience and they hope that the combination of more appealing titles and the digital talking book format will allow them to reach many more people. Adding titles in Spanish is a key objective as well.

For more information, including how to register for their materials, please visit their website or call them at 800-637-9193.  They look forward to serving many more patrons in new and innovative ways!
