National Library Service Survey

The Library of Congress National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) survey is now available. The survey will help them assess how to better serve the needs of readers of talking books and braille. Let your opinions be heard!

To take the survey online or to learn more about it, go to Or, you can call 1-866-545-1618 to schedule a time to take the survey over the phone.

You do not have to be a current NLS reader to take the survey.

The 25 minute survey is designed to learn more about your experiences with talking books and braille, what types of talking book and braille materials and services you are looking for, and what NLS can do to get you interested in the free Library of Congress talking book and braille program. If you aren’t currently using NLS, let them know what services you want and how they can add you to the list of NLS readers. If you are a current NLS reader, let them know what they are doing well, where they can improve, and what new services you would like NLS to offer. Your answers to the survey questions will be kept confidential. Take the survey now to help Library of Congress NLS better serve all readers who use talking books and braille!
