Talking Books Increases Number of Book Loans to Members
TBP members can now check out up to 15 digital book titles (cartridges) when using the postal mail system. Please return books after they are read so they become available to others (and so you can check out more). Titles in the mail are counted as circulating until they are returned and checked in. For more information, please refer to Talking Book Policies and Procedures.
