Talking Books  Special Delivery also takes applications for the free federal Talking Book Program of the Library of Congress, created for individuals who can no longer read or hold print materials. Special Delivery distributes Talking Book players as part of the federal government’s Talking Book Program administered by the State Library of Ohio. Two regional libraries for the blind deliver the actual recorded books. They also provide descriptive videos and Playaway digital audio books, with Special Delivery acting as the local referral contact and information source.

Gratitude With

Special Delivery is special to our patrons, such as Helen VanGorder and her husband, W. Sturgeon VanGorder. So special that Helen entrusted a portion of her estate, about $350,000, to Special Delivery. Both Helen and her husband were longtime Library patrons who later became regular users of the Library-By-Mail service and wanted the service to remain strong - for you!
