The Source for Good Things

Lib.Guide is an online library resource available to our members at all times of the day and night, for free.

Through this resource, members can download books and magazines and request other resources in a number of formats: refreshable or printed braille, large print text for eReader or paper, and audio files for use on Daisy or streaming over a computer or device.

The library has more than 2,000 titles of inspiring and empowering books, many are Christian-based, and so members never need to worry about whether the content will be appropriate for others in the house that may also have access to the material.

Everything is provided for free to our members through this system. The one-time, first-time registration requires the individual to complete a short application and include verification of blindness (read below for a definition). After that, the member can login at at anytime to request a free Bible, lessons, the latest book (we get the most current books like "If Only I Can Imagine" when that was released), or any one of several magazines that are produced by Christian Record Services, Inc.

So, if you haven't already, take a moment and complete the application to become a member, do so today! That's Lib.Guide

Audio Players for Veterans and Children

Christian Record is also able to provide audio players to qualified individuals, veterans and children. These also can be requested through Lib.Guide

The first is an audio player, a gift for our veterans, called inSight4Vets that recharges by the sun or a USB cable. It comes preloaded with inspirational stories of courage and hope and can be used to add more titles to in the future.

Full Vision Books for Parents and Children

Full Vision books are children's stories that contain pictures, text, braille, and audio for a complete immersive experience for both parents and children to enjoy together.

WHAT IS THE CLASSIFICATION OF "LEGALLY BLIND"? According to the American Foundation for the Blind, "Legal blindness is a level of vision loss that has been legally defined to determine eligibility for benefits. The clinical diagnosis refers to a central visual acuity of 20/200 or less in the better eye with the best possible correction, and/or a visual field of 20 degrees or less. Often, people who are diagnosed with legal blindness still have some useable vision."
