Where Can One Find Audio Books?

June 9, 2006

I am the librarian for the European School. We have a couple of kids here who are handicapped and could make very good use of audio books (books on tape for the blind). I remember seeing, a long time ago, a reference to a place here in Costa Rica where one can rent or get access to audio books. Do you know where I could find audio books here?

For information about the free loan of recorded books in English (fiction, nonfiction, travel, etc. all unabridged) call 232-2731.

You can also find books for the blind at the Museum of Forms, Spaces and Sounds (222-9462), 100 meters east of the National Library in San José, at the Hellen Keller Institute (226-2542), in Barrio Los Sauces on the road to Desamparados, and at the National Office for the Blind (Patronato Nacional de Ciegos, 286-0302) at Plaza Víquez, 300 meters south and 50 east of Ferretería el Pipiolo.
