Welcome

We are a charity dedicated to helping those people who want to read but can’t use ordinary books. It may be that the print is too small or turning pages is too difficult – 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.

We have been helping print-disabled people to enjoy books since 2005. You can find out more about us and help us achieve our aims of making reading easy, accessible and pleasurable for people who are print-disabled.
