2020 Patron Open House

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing, CTBL has elected to not hold our Patron Open House on July 16th this year. We will miss the opportunity to visit with everyone in person and are hopeful we will be able to hold the Open House again in 2021.

Building Closed to Public

As of Friday, March 20, the Colorado Talking Book Library will not be open for walk-in patrons. We will still be serving patrons through the mail. Please call, email or use our online catalog to order your books from us. If you are not already set-up to order through the online catalog, call so we can get a password set-up for you.

We have sent an extra cartridge to all of our patrons on an automated service to ensure they have extra books on hand in the event we do have to close down completely. Patrons may also call to request a higher number of books be placed on each cartridge if they go through a significant number of books.

Another option for patrons is to use our BARD download service. More information is located on our BARD page

Any questions or concerns, call us at 303-727-9277 or 1-800-685-2136 or send us an email at
