National Library Service Logo

The ABLE Library serves blind Vermonters and anyone with a visual impairment or print, reading, or learning disability. The ABLE Library—housed at the Vermont State Library—is a network library for the National Library Service for the Blind and Print Disabled (NLS) and connects patrons of all ages to NLS services. We offer a collection of large print and digital talking books featuring all genres, print braille picture books, as well as audio-described DVDs.

Our name, ABLE, is an acronym that stands for our primary services - Audio, Braille, Large-print, and Electronic books.

To receive services, which are free to qualifying Vermonters, fill out and submit the Application for ABLE Library Services.

The ABLE Library staff is also happy to work with care and rehab facilities to provide access for residents.

Don’t hesitate to contact the ABLE Library staff for help: or (802) 636-0020 or (800) 479-1711.
