Patron Handbook

You should have received a large print version of the Patron Handbook with your new patron packet that was mailed shortly after you signed up. If you either didn't receive or misplaced your copy, you can download the full version of the Patron Handbook as either a PDF document or an electronic Braille (.brf) file. We can also send you a copy of the audio version of CTBL's patron handbook. Please contact a reader advisor at 303-727-9277, 1-800-685-2136 (toll-free, in-state only), or


This is The Colorado Talking Book Library's (CTBL) updated and revised Patron Handbook. We hope it will be a useful resource for you when you have questions. We are always happy to hear from you with either questions or suggestion, so please call us if you do not find the information you are looking for in the handbook, would like to request books, or for any other reason.
