Bay Area Older Adult Community Resource of the Week – Talking Books and Braille Center

This week’s Geri Community Resource is: Talking Books and Braille Center.

The newly renovated Talking Books and Braille Center (TBBC) is associated with the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) at the Library of Congress and offers complimentary library services to San Francisco residents facing challenges accessing printed materials due to visual impairments or print disabilities. Registered members can check out talking books, braille books, and audio-described DVDs. Additionally, a range of assistive technologies, such as computers, desktop video magnifiers, scanning and reading software, and a Braille embosser, are provided for use. Every month, TBBC hosts various community events including book clubs, a writer’s salon, a Spanish-language music appreciation group, and personalized technical support sessions. Stay informed about TBBC activities by tuning in to their newsletter!
