NLB has a large selection of talking books for children, young adults and adults. You can borrow books in every genre, from crime and serial novels to contemporary literature, biographies and science fiction. We also have a rich selection of talking books in English.
We produce most of the talking books in our own studios. In addition, we purchase audio books from commercial producers..
