NNELS Adds 70 Books for Young Adult Readers with Print Disabilities

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

Looking for audiobooks for teens with print disabilities? Anyone with a vision, mobility, or comprehension impairment can access any or all of the 70 new titles now available for download from the NNELS collection.

All 70 books are recorded with human voices and are in either DAISY or MP3 format. Some are purchased, and some were produced by NNELS.

Special thanks to librarians in BC who recommended a number of books we were able to record for the collection, including all three books in Jason Chabot’s popular Broken Sky Chronicles, And Nothing But the Truth by Kit Pearson, Bungee Jump and Camp Wild by Pam Withers, Heart of a Champion by Ellen Schwarz, and Audacious by Gabrielle Prendergast.

We hope your teen readers enjoy these books! Please contact NNELS if you have any questions about how to access or use books from the NNELS collection. Anyone with a print disability is entitled to access them, and other people (including friends, family members, or library staff) may download books on a reader’s behalf.

We acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Education, Libraries Branch.
