Braille and Talking Book Library

The Coloma Public Library now serves as a demo site for the Braille and Talking Book Library (BTBL). Stop in and we will be glad to show you how to use their digital players.

The BTBL provides library service to residents of the United States who are unable to read or use regular print materials as a result of temporary or permanent visual or physical limitation. This includes those who are blind or have a visual or physical disability that prevents them from reading or handling print materials.

If standard print has become difficult for you, a friend, or a family member, please contact us at 269-468-3431 for more information. Library staff can help you complete and submit a certified application.

To contact the Braille and Talking Book Library directly, call 800-992-9012.

Teen Book Box Logo If you are a teenager who loves free things, you may enjoy our Teen Book Boxes! Just click here to tell us a little about yourself to get started. After we receive your survey, staff will select a library book and put it in a special box filled with goodies!  We will notify you when your box is ready for check-out. You have to return the book to us when done, but you get to keep everything else.  Have more fun by decorating your box. Don’t forget to write your name on it. Each month, you can return your special box and we will refill it with another selected book and more goodies. For questions, call the library @ 269-468-3431 or email us at readcoloma@gmail.com.

Program available while supplies last. Boxes can be picked up at the Help Desk or curbside upon request. This service is for young adults aged 12-18.
