Looking for a Book?

Fulfilling reader requests for books in alternate formats is an important part of what we do! If you live in a NNELS territory or province, you can make requests anytime: log in, search for a book, and you'll find the request form on every page of search results.

Books in accessible formats for Canadians with print disabilities: produced by request, delivered by public libraries, and available across the country.

To get started, please search for your library, contact your nearest librarian, or drop us a line.
