imageimageFree memberships available for audiobook library service

Listening Books is a national charity that provides a postal and online audiobook library service to children and adults who struggle to read or hold a book due to an illness, disability, mental health issue or learning difficulty, and they have recently received funding to offer a number of FREE memberships to people living in Scotland who would find the usual membership fees (£20 – £45 per year) a barrier to joining the service.

The library has a huge range of brilliant fiction, non-fiction and educational audiobooks from bestselling authors such as Philippa Gregory, James Patterson, Agatha Christie, JK Rowling, David Walliams, Jacqueline Wilson, MC Beaton, Terry Pratchett and many more, including study guides supporting the National Curriculum.  Titles are available across three easily accessible formats: MP3 CDs sent through the post (all postage is included in the membership), downloads from the website which can be transferred to a portable device such as a tablet or smart phone, and online streaming through a Windows PC, Mac or compatible device.

To apply for a free membership, please contact Jo Cord on 020 7407 9417 or  You can also apply online by visiting and ticking the box to apply for a free place.
