The NNELS collection for print-disabled library patrons

Are you a Canadian with a print disability? Through the Gibsons Library, you can now access thousands of audiobooks through the NNELS service.

NNELS is the National Network of Equitable Library Service, provided by the BC Libraries Cooperative, and developed with support from The Provincial and Territorial Public Library Council – Conseil provincial et territorial des bibliotheques.

Content is predominately popular fiction and non-fiction for adults, though there are some juvenile titles as well. Approximately 10,000 titles are currently available in the NNELS catalogue and most are in English; content in French and other languages is likely to become available later in 2014.

Content is selected through a legally-verified process and is based on requests from readers with print disabilities.

Most titles are in DAISY format, although there are some e-braille and e-text books.

Contact the Library at (604) 886-2130 to obtain a Self Declaration form verifying your disability, and start accessing NNELS.
