NLS Braille-on-Demand Project

Are you interested in increasing your personal braille library? As part of its braille modernization initiative, Nation Library Service (NLS) launched the Braille-on-Demand pilot project on Monday, June 20,2022. This project will allow active NLS patrons to request and receive one hard-copy braille title per month, which you can keep for your personal collection.

Braille titles will be limited to books that are currently available on BARD, the NLS Braille and Audio Reading Download service. Only complete titles will be distributed. Requests for partial titles (for example, volume one of a three-volume book) will result in receiving the entire book.

The form to request a braille-on-demand book can be found at this link:

You can complete the form yourself, or you can reach out to the Utah State Library for the Blind and our readers advisors will assist you. You can also email NLS Reference at [email protected] for assistance in completing the form.
