AACI Cohen Library for the Visually Impaired & Homebound
What if your vision has deteriorated so that you can no longer read the books you love? Or what if a physical handicap makes it difficult for you to hold a book or to leave your home in order to acquire new reading material?
Anyone who has  trouble reading regular print  needn’t give up the pleasure of enjoying a good book.  Located in the Jerusalem office of the AACI, the AACI-Cohen Library serves English speakers from all over Israel.
What could be easier than to request books by phone or e-mail, have them mailed to you free of charge, and return them in the same container postage free?
The Library is a lifeline for English speaking visually or physically impaired book lovers.  The collection includes more than 2000 "talking books"  (audiobooks in various formats) as well as more than 1300 large-print books.  Subject matter includes fiction, suspense, biography, and other non-fiction. In addition, library members are entitled to request free large-print Jewish religious material such as Siddurim, Machzorim, Haggadot, and Megillot.
Books may be ordered by mail, email, telephone or by visiting the library during opening hours. They can be borrowed for up to a month. Books are sent and returned by mail. Postage is free.
Membership in the AACI library is 150 NIS annually for unlimited borrowing.  A trial membership of 50 shekels for 3 months is also available.
