Do any of you have a audiobook library for the reading impaired?

We've been looking at providing reading materials for the visually impaired. I thought this would be easy but as I delve further into the issue many questions are popping up. Audio books are expensive..how do we know what type of materials would appeal to the readers...do we incorporate this with a locial library and provide the ability to access thru the local library... Do we set up a drop box type of service in the church...how to provide a list of available materials for them to check out? Are there any companies that provide audiobooks at a reasonable cost? We have a few ideas, but would welcome further input from other churches.

Perhaps, if your church has a disability advocate, he/she could help the visually impaired person set up a library card and borrow the desired titles. Many libraries have extensive audio collections now and would probably facilitate something on an individual basis. Several online sites have classics available for no charge as well as Amazon which has constantly changing audio book selections that are free. I also believe the Society for the Blind or similar organizations might help you set up if you need to have the materials physically available at your church.
