12. Does the Talking Book Library Offer Special Services for Students?

The Talking Book Library's collection contains many unabridged classics, biographies, popular fiction, and non-fiction often assigned by schools. Every effort is made to provide the books needed by students, teachers and school systems. If a book is not on the shelf at the time of the request, the Talking Book Library will request duplication on cassette as soon as possible or obtain it through inter-library loan. It is recommended that a student give the Talking Book Library a minimum of four weeks advance notice for a specific book. Although there are no textbooks in its collection, the Talking Book Library staff can assist with referrals to other agencies that may carry them. In addition, the Talking Book Library has reader advisors who can assist students with information requests. To request a book title, call 508-799-1730, 1-800-762-0085 or send e-mail to: talkbook@worcpublib.org.
