Large print and talking books in English

The State Library of NSW maintains a collection of approximately 9,500 large print books, and 7,000 talking books which are available to NSW public libraries on interlibrary loan, as a back-up to local collections.

The State Library has made the entire large print and talking book collections available to NSW public libraries on long term loan.  Library managers were invited to express interest in receiving an allocation of these collections in July 2017 and the State Library has distributed material to participating libraries. 

The State Library has prepared frequently asked questions to assist libraries.
