Patron Stories

At our annual Open House, we have patrons and their friends or family members record their experiences using the Colorado Talking Book Library. The links to listen to these stories are located on our Oral Histories Page.


The Friends of CTBL have created a public service announcement (PSA) to market the library. This segment has been airing on Fox and The CW here in Colorado. The link below is for an MP4 video.
