Connecticut Library for Accessible Books

The Connecticut Library for Accessible Books (CT LAB), is a network library of the Library of Congress’s National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS). CT LAB lends books and magazines in audio and braille formats, for free, to any Connecticut resident who is unable to read regular print due to a visual, reading, or physical disability.

Readers register with CT LAB and materials are delivered to them via U.S. mail or are downloaded to their personal computers and mobile devices. The NLS collection includes nonfiction, fiction, bestsellers, magazines, and the NLS music section. Titles are available in a variety of world languages. The collection is intended to appeal to patrons of all ages. 

Otis Library is a hub for CTLAB, providing examples of the materials and equipment if you would like to test them at the library before registering for the service. We also have handouts with additional information and paper copies of the application.
