Listening Books - a UK charity providing an audiobook lending service to those who cannot read or hold a book due to illness, disability or mental health conditions.

Listening Books is a national UK charity providing an audiobook lending service for those that have an illness, physical or learning disability or mental health condition that affects reading or holding books.

Members are able to borrow titles on MP3 CD, which are sent through the post via Royal Mail, or they can choose to use the service online through our website, or using the Libby app to download titles to a portable device such as a phone or tablet. 

We have over 10,000 titles available for members to borrow, over 3500 of which are suitable for children and young adults. We add to the catalogue throughout the year (funding permitting) and also record educational titles that support the National Curriculum and which are unavailable elsewhere in the audio format, such as study guides and set texts.
