Listening Books provide an audiobook library service for anyone who finds that an illness, disability, specific learning difficulty, or mental health condition impacts on the ability to read or hold a book. They have over 8,000 titles available from bestselling authors such as J. K. Rowling, David Walliams, Jeff Kinney, Lauren Child, Michael Morpurgo, David Baddiel, Malorie Blackman, and many more. Members can borrow audiobooks in three easily accessible ways:
- Sent directly through the post on MP3 CD with no postage costs or late fees
- Downloaded to an app available for smartphones or tablets
- Streamed online through a desktop or laptop computer
Membership fees range from £20 to £45 per year, but they also offer free memberships to anyone who would find this cost difficult to cover.
