What will you find when you enter the South Dakota State Library's Braille and Talking Book Program? Bound by neither walls nor shelves, the library reaches out across the state to all South Dakotans who are unable to use standard print.

Eligibility Requirements

Individuals who cannot read or use conventional printed materials as a result of physical limitations, i.e. blind, visually limited, physically limited, cannot hold a book or turn the pages, and reading/learning disabled are by law eligible. This also includes persons in private homes, nursing homes, hospitals, schools and other institutions.

In case of reading disability from organic dysfunction, “competent authority” is defined as a doctor of medicine or a doctor of osteopathy who may consult with colleagues in associated disciplines.
