Employees of nursing homes, schools, or other institutions who want to register residents, students or clients for Talking Book service have the following options:
You can register individual patrons for talking book service by filling out the Application Form for Individuals on their behalf. The name of a contact person at the institution or agency must accompany the application.
You may also register to receive a deposit collection in your institution or agency by filling out and returning the Application for Free Library Service - Institutions, which is issued by the National Library Service. This will allow you to obtain and monitor the use of talking books and magazines by eligible patrons in your institution. Deposit collections are typically 20 books loaned to an agency and will need staff support to assure that they are rotated quarterly, so your patrons will have a new batch of books from which to choose. You can also call us at 1.800.995.6215 to obtain a printed copy.
Applications must be signed and certified by a professional (listed on the application). Applicants with a reading or learning disability must have their application certified by a Medical Doctor. You will receive a confirming phone call as soon as we receive your application. After the application has been processed, we'll send you the special format recorded book player and a welcome packet containing sample catalogs of our books and magazines. If you ask us to choose books for you, you will also receive a few books in the subject areas you specified on your application. Digital players to institutions are limited to one player for every four users.
