Voices of Vision

As a Franklin Park Library cardholder, you have access to Voices of Vision, a free service that provides talking-books (audio cassette and digital), talking-book machines, braille books, recorded/braille magazines, and more to low-vision and blind persons. This program is sponsored by the Illinois Secretary of State and the Illinois State Library.
