Catalogs and Bibliographies: Catalogs are mailed bimonthly to inform customers about new books and magazines added to the collection. These catalogs are used to select and order reading materials. Recorded book customers usually receive Talking Book Topics, while Braille readers most often subscribe to Braille Book Review. A complete book catalog is also available.

Bibliographies listing books available in recorded or Braille formats covering specific topics, such as Humor or Fishing, are produced to assist customers in selecting books of interest.
