NLB is a library for persons with print disabilities. Anyone who has difficulties reading printed text due to disability or illness may join NLB.
Reasons to become a borrower may be:
- Impaired vision
- Dyslexia and other reading difficulties
- Physical impairment that makes it difficult to read a book (such as CP, ME and Parkinson's)
- Speech impairments or cognitive challenges due to illness or injury
NLB's talking books does not apply to people learning Norwegian as a second language – if you don´t have a reading disability.
You can apply to register temporarily if you have a disease or injury and need talking books for a limited period of time.
Institutions such as hospitals and nursing homes can register to lend on behalf of people who have a temporary need for talking books.
Public libraries can register and try the service offered by NLB. In this way they can assist people in the target groups to become members.
