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 audiobooks and audio magazines and braille through the mail and through digital download to individuals with a visual or physical condition, or a reading disability which limits use of regular print.

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 consists of books and magazines similar to those found in a public library. Our playback equipment is provided on long-term-loan free of charge. And the materials in our collection and the playback equipment 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.
