Listening Books is a national UK charity, providing an audiobook library service for those that find reading difficult due to an illness, disability, learning or mental health difficulty. Members are able to borrow titles on MP3 CD, which are sent through the post via Royal Mail, or they can choose to borrow and download/stream titles on a computer or portable device such as an Android device or iPhone.
What we do:
- Audiobook library service
- Members can access books on MP3 CD or download or stream them to a computer or portable device such as a Android device of iPhone.
- Anyone in the UK that finds it difficult to read or hold a book due to an illness, disability, learning or mental health difficulty can become a member
- We sometimes have funding for free memberships for those that would be unable to afford our subsidised membership fee
