Listening Books are a national charity providing an audiobook library service for anyone who finds that an illness, disability, specific learning difficulty, or mental health condition impacts on the ability to read or hold a book.
They have over 8,000 fiction and non-fiction audiobooks in their library from bestselling authors such as J. K. Rowling, Philip Pullman, George R. R. Martin, and many more. Members can borrow titles in three easily accessible ways:
- Sent directly through the post on MP3 CD with no postage costs or late fees
- Downloaded to an app available for smartphones or tablets
- Streamed online through a desktop or laptop computer
A free membership covers all options, so members can choose what works best for them. Please be assured that they are a charity and there are no hidden costs involved in their free memberships.
Listening Books currently have free memberships available for people living in Southwark and the surrounding areas who would find it difficult to cover our membership fees for any reason (usually between £20 and £45 per year).
