Mission Statement

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for people unable to benefit directly from the printed page, by providing a service to stimulate minds, stir emotions and foster independence through our "Reading by Listening" program.


Books Aloud is an independent nonprofit organization that provides free audio book library services to people of all ages who are unable to read printed books on their own, due to a physical, visual, or learning disability.
