Books on Tape
Books on CD
Audio-Described VHS Movies
The book lists are available by author and by title. The lists are updated regularly. These lists are in a Word document format; therefore, you can search for your favorite author or by book title.

All items may be borrowed by anyone in the United States. The materials need to be returned to the Multi-Media Center within three months, maximum.
If you would like a book translated into Braille (small jobs only), the Rochester Braille Service has several certified Braillists willing to assist you.
You can call the Multi-Media Center and speak to the volunteers on Wednesday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at (585) 697-5798 or (800) 640-6005. You can also leave a message anytime – leaving your name, phone number, state and which media you are interested in. Your call will be returned by the following Wednesday.
