Talking Books patrons of all ages are invited to jump into adventures and discovery in "Imagine Your Story".

Exciting news! We are moving this year’s summer reading program online. Kansas Talking Books patrons can now keep track of the books or minutes you read using the Reader Zone app and/or website.

Reader Zone mobile app is available for Android, Apple, and Amazon devices. The website is available at https://www.readerzone.com/. To join the KTB summer reading program, call us at 1-800-362-0699 or email KTB@ks.gov for the program code.

By registering for summer reading, you’ll be entered to win one of our weekly prizes. You must reach the reading goal specific to your age group to be eligible for our Grand Prize drawing. One grand prize will be awarded for each age group.

The reading goal for adults is 5 books read for the duration of the program. Youth patrons, ages 0-17, have a reading goal of 60 minutes per week.

Prizes are generously donated by the Kansas Advisory Council for Talking Books Services and we thank the council for their support.
