Effective Thursday, June 4th, WTBBL has resumed by-mail circulation of books and equipment. Thank you for your patience as we work to bring our shipping and circulation operations back up to full service. If you are in need of something to read and you have access to a computer, tablet, mobile device, or third-party player with internet capabilities, please make use of our Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) website and BARD mobile app, which allows you to access all of our talking books and digital braille files. Find information on BARD and BARD mobile at nlsbard.loc.gov

Welcome to the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library online catalog.

Use this catalog to identify books, request titles to be mailed to you, or find links to download books from BARD.

Click on the Browse tab to see lists of recently added books, the most popular books this month, books produced at WTBBL, and staff picks.

Click on the Search tab to search by author, title, subject or keyword. Once your search results are displayed, you can use the menu along the left margin to narrow down your results. Clicking on a subject heading will show you just the results with that heading. Clicking on the blue minus sign after a subject heading will remove all the books with that heading from the results list.

You can request any book in the catalog. If you put a rush on it, it will be mailed to you as soon as it is available. Books listed as IN PROCESS or DOWNLOAD ONLY may stay on your wish list for some time, until the library gets a copy to circulate. Please call or email the library if you need a book soon for a book club or school assignment.
