How do *YOU* Read?

The “How do YOU Read?” survey is now closed, and we would like to say a huge thanks to everyone who took the time to share our tweets and emails, and helped spread the word!

We received hundreds of submissions, and are so excited to look at everyone’s responses.

If you would like to be notified when we release our report (in accessible formats), please sign up for the NNELS mailing list.

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.
