The Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL) is part of the Library of Congress National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS) network of cooperating libraries.  WTBBL  circulates audio books, brailled materials, and playback equipment provided by the federal government to Wisconsin residents who cannot read standard print. Materials and equipment are provided free of charge via postage-free mail to where the resident is living. In addition, the WTBBL circulates audio books and brailled materials about Wisconsin or by Wisconsin authors, as well as audio-described videotapes and DVDs.

The service is headquartered in the Milwaukee Public Library's Central Library. It is funded by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction, Division for Libraries and Technology, and administered by the Milwaukee Public Library.
