Thank you to the Oakland Talking Book Service for providing us with this eye-catching and informative display.  You'll find it across from the reference desk in the adult department.oakland talking book service low vision display

The Oakland County Library for the Visually and Physically Impaired, formerly located in the 1200 Building on North Telegraph Road, is now  Oakland Talking Book Service located at the Rochester Hills Public Library.  It is one of many regional libraries for the blind under the Michigan Bureau of Services for Blind Persons (BSBP) Braille and Talking Book Library, which in turn administers the services of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.

Over 80 Waterford residents currently make use of this free service, getting audiobooks through the mail or downloading digital audiobooks and magazines through BARD.  If you know a Waterford resident who has low vision but would like to be able to read/listen to books you can pick up an application form for Oakland Talking Book Service at our adult desk.
