3. Library of Congress. My dad is blind from MS and that's how he gets his
Edited on Sat Nov-26-05 02:29 PM by jane_pippin
books on tape.

I'm not sure exactly how it works--he's been doing it since I was a teeny tiny kid--but somehow blind people can use this service through the Library of Congress that provides you with a tape player (I think)--my dad still has this big old thing from 1984 and I think he said it came from them--and you get a catalog of titles that you can choose from that they just mail to you in these giant green plastic cases.

I don't know if they have interviews/lectures but I know they have magazines because he gets Newsweek every week so who knows, they might.
