The Library of Congress National Library Service for the Blind and

better serve the needs of readers of talking books and braille. Take the
survey now to let your opinions be heard and help us better serve you! You
do not have to be a current NLS reader to take the survey. The survey should
take no longer than 25 minutes. It will be used to improve services to
current readers and to find out what services readers of talking books and
braille are looking for. If you are not currently using NLS, let us know
what services you want and how we can add you to our list of NLS readers. If
you are a current NLS reader, let us know what we are doing well, where we
can improve, and what new services you would like NLS to offer. You can take
the survey in one of two ways - take the survey anytime online at

responses will only be reported at an aggregate level, meaning we will
combine your responses with those of others who are similar to you. Please
take the survey only once.
