For people unable to read standard print with ease due to vision impairment, physical disability or a learning disability, or for those who are unable to hold a book, Riverina Regional Library is proud to provide its members with this service.

Riverina Regional Library has purchased Plextalk devices – digital talking book players that have been especially designed for the print disabled. The devices are now available to be borrowed from any branch of Riverina Regional Library, including the Mobile Library.

Our branch libraries also have a range of audio books that you can borrow and play on the Plextalk devices.
