BookLink is a lending library app that allows people who are blind, have low vision, or who have a print disability to download audiobooks.
With the BookLink app there is no need to wait until a title is available as it allows for simultaneous multi-user access.
Audiobooks can be downloaded directly to an Apple mobile device and once downloaded can be read without requiring an internet connection.
