The ABLE Library serves Vermonters across the state who are blind or have low vision. We also serve patrons with a physical or reading disability that keeps them from reading regular print books. We are part of the Vermont Department of Libraries. We are also a network library for the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS).

We help patrons of all ages access books in a format that fits their reading needs. We have a collection of large print books and digital talking books. We also have a collection of books for children and teens, as well as print braille picture books and audio-described DVDs. For patrons who read braille, we partner with the Perkins Library to give our patrons access to their braille books. Whichever book format you choose to read, our staff are available to help.

We also work with partners to make sure eligible Vermonters can access our services. We often work with schools, libraries, and residential care homes. If you would like to partner with the ABLE Library, please contact us.

Our name, ABLE, stands for our main services: Audio, braille, large print, and electronic books.
