The Flemish Library for Audio Books and Braille (Luisterpunt) is a public library, which lends books in an adapted form to persons with print disabilities. It is a government-financed non-profit organization, working for Flanders and Brussels. Its goal lies in delivering books in an adapted form to all persons who are not able to read conventionally printed books.

Blind persons, visually impaired elderly persons, persons who are bedridden or have a disorder of muscles or joints, dyslexic children and all those who are unable to read or have difficulties reading a printed book, can contact Luisterpunt. Books are available in two special formats: audio books and braille books.

The complete collection of books can be consulted in our online catalogue.

Becoming a member of the library and lending books is free of charge, as are the postal services. Schools, homes for elderly people, public libraries and other institutions can also get a DAISY collection of about 100 audio books or more for free. For the moment 80% of all the Flemish public libraries in Flanders and Brussels has a DAISY collection and a DAISY player.
