About Us

The Nebraska Library Commission's Talking Book and Braille Service (TBBS) is part of a nationwide network of cooperating libraries headed by the National Library Service (NLS), a division of the Library of Congress.

TBBS provides free books and magazines on digital cartridge, through digital download, and in Braille to individuals with a visual or physical condition, or a reading disability which limits use of regular print. Our transition to digital books and players continues to increase weekly.

In our in-house sound studios, we also record and produce audiobooks and audio-magazines from either Nebraska and regional authors or about Nebraska and the Great Plains. The recordings from our Nebraska Collection are made available for loan to our patrons.

Our collection of books and magazines is similar to those found in a public library. Special digital playback equipment is also provided free of charge. Our descriptive video collection offers audio description of the visual elements of movie and Public Television program videos and DVDs.

Books, magazines, videos, and players are mailed to and from our library postage-free.

Our library service is available to individuals, as well as schools and other facilities, such as nursing homes, hospitals and senior citizen centers.

In addition to the free services mentioned above, we provide audio production and Braille embossing to nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies.
