Collaborative Summer Library Program Resource List for RI Public Librarians

The following books for the Summer Library Program are available in various formats to members and potential members of Talking Books Plus (TBP). TBP, Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS), is a service for individuals who cannot read regular print. For example, an individual may be Blind, visually impaired or have a physical disability which prevents them from holding a print book. Agencies who serve these individuals are also eligible for membership. Individuals and agencies must have applied for membership before borrowing any materials from TBP.

This resource list includes digital audio books, braille and cassette formats for individual titles included in the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) Manuals. This list was compiled by TBP library for the benefit of TBP members so they may fully participate in your summer reading program. All of these books are in the TBP online catalog.

TBP members or potential members may call TBP if they would like to apply for membership, are unable to order online or want an edition or another book that is not on the CSLP Resource List.

For further information, please call 401-574-9310, email olis.tbplus@olis.ri.gov or visit the Talking Books Plus webpage.
