Bookshare for Adults
Do You Love Reading?
Books are enriching. They tell stories, teach skills, and connect us to the wider world.
When people cannot read books due to barriers like vision loss or dyslexia, they miss out on all the great things books have to offer.
Bookshare® makes reading easier. You can access a huge library of ebooks in formats like audio, large font, and braille and customize your experience in ways that work for you.
Read Your Way
Readers can customize their experience in ways that work for them:
- Listen to books with high quality audio
- See text and follow along with word-level highlighting
- Adjust reading speed, font, and color
- Enlarge font size
- Read in braille
- Add bookmarks and notes
- Read on computers, smartphones, tablets, assistive technology devices
- Take advantage of partners apps and study tools
Bookshare ebooks provide more reading options than other ebooks or audio books. See how Bookshare works.
Lowest Cost, Unlimited Reading
Members can read as many books as they like for just $50 per year. That translates to less than $1 per week for unlimited reading.
We also work with several state NLS libraries. Please check with your state NLS branch
