The Talking Book Program (TBP) is a free program that provides unabridged books in alternative formats for Texans of all ages who are unable to read standard print material due to visual, physical, or reading disabilities. TBP provides books and magazines in digital audio, large print and Braille formats. A digital audio player is provided on loan at no cost to qualified persons. Books and magazines can also be downloaded to certain portable devices using a mobile app. In FY2012, TBP provided services to nearly 16,000 individuals and institutions across Texas and circulated more than 860,000 books and magazines.
