North Dakota State Library Talking Books offers an array of services for citizens of North Dakota who are unable to read standard print materials because of a visual, physical, or reading disability. Two programs are available for those who qualify for these services: Talking Books and Dakota Radio Information Services (DRIS). The Talking Books program provides patrons with free access to talking books and magazines. The Talking Books program is administered by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), a division of the Library of Congress. Dakota Radio Information Services (DRIS) broadcasts local newspapers over a closed circuit radio to the patrons in the middle and western portion of the state. In addition to local news, DRIS also broadcasts a nationally syndicated radio program twenty-four hours a day. These programs utilize volunteers who read newspapers on the radio, record books and magazines, and provide other valuable services to keep this program running smoothly.
