Do you have trouble holding a book, reading standard print, or turning the pages? The East Brunswick Public Library is a chosen Outspoken Library for all residents of Middlesex County. This audio book service brings the delight of books to all residents whose ability to read is affected by a vision impairment, a physical impairment or a reading disability. Once signed up for the service, you are given a digital audio player to keep at home. Outspoken Library offers thousands of unabridged books, including today's most popular books and many bestsellers. You can even listen to popular newsstand magazines. You tell the librarian which books and magazines you wish to enjoy and we download them for you onto a USB drive. All you need to do is plug the USB drive into your digital player at home and hit the Start Button.

The service is free to all users who qualify by having their doctor complete the Certificate of Eligibility within the application form. You can also contact the East Brunswick Public Library Information Desk at 732-390-6767 to arrange to meet with a librarian who will handle the registration process, discuss the types of books and magazines you prefer, and download books for your digital player.
