CARRY A LIBRARY IN YOUR POCKET

Access more than 100,000 books, magazines, and music scores , with new selections added daily.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

To download books using this app, you must first apply for service from your local braille and talking-book library. You can find which library in the NLS network serves you by visiting www.loc.gov/nls/find.html or calling 1-800-NLS-READ. Your library can discuss eligibility with you and walk you through the application process.

If you are already registered for service with your local braille and talking-book library but do not have a BARD account, simply contact your library and request a user name and password.


WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

BARD Mobile is a service of the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), Library of Congress. NLS provides free audio and braille reading materials to residents of the United States and American citizens living abroad who cannot read regular print books. If you are blind, low-vision, or have a physical disability that makes it difficult for you to hold or turn the pages of a book, you may be eligible for this program. For more information on eligibility, visit www.loc.gov/nls/about/eligibility-for-nls-services.


WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED?

Audio materials downloaded from BARD can be read directly on your Android device.
