“The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice. The Goals interconnect and in order to leave no one behind, it ís important that we achieve each Goal and target by 2030.”
Digital books and magazines from the National Library Service (NLS) in Washington, D.C. are available for download from the NLS BARD main page. You can listen to your downloaded books on the digital player that TBBL provides, or, for even more flexibility, you can get the free BARD Mobile app, for either iOS/Apple or Android devices, and listen to your books via your smartphone or tablet. BARD Express, a program that makes downloading easier, is also available to all BARD members.
There are more than 80,000 digital books and over 60 magazines available for download from this site, and new titles are constantly being added. Digital braille books can also be downloaded via BARD.
Don’t forget about the Talking Book and Braille Library available through the New York State Library. The New York State Talking Book and Braille Library (TBBL) lends audio and braille books and magazines to eligible residents of upstate New York who have a qualifying print disability.
