Welcome

We are a charity dedicated to helping those people who want to read but can’t use printed books. It may be that the print is too small or that turning pages is not practical – whatever the reason, we can help!

Our online library provides books in a flexible format that can be downloaded by library members. You can join for free if you are eligible, or take part in our School librarian project.

If making reading easy, accessible and pleasurable for everyone appeals to you, we’re always looking for volunteers to help us help us achieve our aims using their own computer at home.
