The Braille and Audio Reading Download (BARD) is provided by the National Library Service to allow Talking Book Service patrons the ability to freely download audio titles to their computer, tablet, or mobile device. Accessing BARD requires a computer or device, high-speed internet, an email address, and the ability to download files.

BARD Express is an easy way for patrons to access BARD on their computer. The BARD Mobile app is available from Google Play, the App Store, and Amazon for Android, iOS, and Kindle devices.
