Anyone with a visual impairment or physical disability that makes reading difficult is eligible to receive this radio reading service.
What fees are involved? There is no charge for Audible Local Ledger broadcast services. Because the Audible Local Ledger is a nonprofit organization we ask for a one-time fee of $50.00 - $75.00 to defray the cost of the SCA receiver. No one who is eligible is turned down from our service. If cost is a factor, alternate arrangements may be arranged.

Volunteer Opportunities Readers Needed
Do you have a love for reading? Volunteers are the core of the Audible Local Ledger. Without our volunteers, we could not possibly continue to provide our free radio reading service to individuals who are blind, visually impaired, and print disabled.
I know the benefits of being a volunteer are endless, and they will guide you to a better quality of life. Volunteer readers come from every part of society, every age group and walk of life. You can help the print disabled keep in touch with the community around them by being a volunteer reader and joining our team.
I may be the Director of the Audible Local Ledger, but my volunteers are the orchestra, and they play the music. I sincerely thank each and every one of them for their dedication, which enables our listeners to live their lives with the greatest personal independence.
