I have always had to pay for my own talking books, and also my bookstream
subscription and now the overdrive service.

Good luck to those who get their subscriptions paid for them by Local
Authorities, but I do not see why it should be the responsibility of RNIB to
arrange this.  There is nothing to stop individuals taking up the matter
with their own Authorities.  They might have more luck than RNIB are having.

I do find this post code lottery system rather strange though.  Surely the
National Government should sponsor library services for the blind in the
same way they do for public libraries for the sighted.

And now I will retire gracefully and browse overdrive for some more books.

Ditto, even though my local authority contacted RNIB last Friday on my
behalf.!!!
