Listening Books

Description

Listening Books provides an audiobook library service to children and adults who find it difficult to read or hold a book due to an illness, disability, learning or mental health difficulty.

Listening Books is a UK charity providing thousands of audiobooks on three easily accessible formats: downloads, internet streaming and MP3 CDs.

We have some 55,000 members and our service is available to anyone who has a disability or illness which makes it difficult to hold a book, turn it's pages, or read in the usual way.

The library caters for both adults and children. We provide audiobooks for leisure and we support the National Curriculum from Key Stage 2 to A-Level. All of our titles are either commercially sourced or recorded in our own digital studios.

We also offer our services to an additional audience of thousands of other pupils with special educational needs, through our partnerships with regional online grids across the UK.
