Audio Books

One of the most popular destinations for many of our patrons is our audio book area. Our collection of audiobooks is constantly growing.

Choice Magazine Listening

Free audio magazine for adults with impaired vision or other disability

Magazines are a source of entertainment and intellectual stimulation for millions of Americans. Magazines of all types—general interest, specialty, and literary—enrich our lives by bringing us articles on every subject imaginable, not to mention short stories, poetry, essays, and interviews. Most of us take the everyday pleasure of reading magazines for granted. It’s easy to forget that many people have a visual or physical condition that prevents them from reading. If you or someone you know loves magazines but can’t read them, or can read them only with great difficulty, we can help.

Choice Magazine Listening is an audio anthology of high-quality magazine writing, offered completely free of charge to eligible adults all over the country. CML’s exceptional, unique service isn’t only for those who are blind. It’s for anyone who has difficulty reading, or even holding a magazine, due to a visual or physical limitation. Such conditions include, but are not limited to, macular degeneration, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, dyslexia, ALS, stroke, and more.

Each 12-hour issue of CML contains several dozen unabridged articles, plus a few pieces of fiction and poetry, carefully selected by our three experienced editors from approximately 100 magazines. The selections are recorded by professional audio book narrators and brought to you four times a year: Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter. Not only is CML absolutely free, but the special player you will need is provided free by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, Library of Congress (NLS)..
