Services for the Blind & Print Disabled

GLS Logo
The Georgia Library Service (GLS) for the Blind and Print Disabled provides library services for individuals who are blind or whose physical abilities require the use of books and magazines in audio, braille or other adapted formats.

GLS provides vital reading materials in accessible formats.  Individuals are eligible if they are blind,  have low vision, or are physically unable to hold a book and turn the page.  GLS services are also available to those with reading disabilities such as dyslexia.

Visit the GLS website or call 1-800-248-6701 for more information.
