Dear Talking Book Readers,
This catalog lists audio books produced by the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library from 2003 through 2007. Book listings are arranged by subject and include a brief description of the book’s content. We hope that this catalog helps you discover interesting reading material.
These titles were selected for production based on your requests and to supplement underrepresented areas in the existing collection. You will find that many of the books are by local authors or are set in the Pacific Northwest.
Production of these books would not have been possible without the contribution of many hours of narrating, editing, and reviewing by our talented volunteers. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks for their assistance.
To order any of the books listed here, simply call the Library at 1-800-542-0866 (206-615-0400 in the Seattle area) or e-mail wtbbl@secstate.wa.gov .
Happy Reading!

Sincerely,


Danielle King, Director
