Sterling Heroes of WWII Now Available in Audio Format

Posted on January 7, 2014 | in Member News | by

Sterling HeroesSterling Heroes of World War II, the widely popular collection of first-person accounts of service by northeastern Colorado veterans in the early 1940s, is now available through the Colorado Talking Book Library in audio form for those with conditions that prevent reading a book. Denny Dressman collaborated with Dr. John Elliff of Sterling on the book, which was published in July 2012. It was one of the top sellers at the recent CAL Co-Op Book Booth at the Junior League of Denver Mile High Holiday Mart.

The Colorado Talking Book Library (CTBL) is part of a national network of libraries that partner with The Library of Congress unit known as the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped to deliver services to the print-disabled. Bi-monthly catalogs inform the user community nationwide of new and previously existing titles that have been audio-recorded.

CTBL books and magazines are recorded in an audio format that requires special playback equipment. That equipment is loaned by participating libraries, and a user may keep it for as long as it is being actively used to listen to the recordings of published works. The audio recordings also are loaned, free of charge in the same way a conventional library loans titles.

Recipients of the CTBL listening devices and audio recordings must be certified by a medical doctor or doctor of osteopathy. Eligible individuals include those who are legally blind, seriously visually impaired, unable to handle books or turn pages, or who have a certified learning disability severe enough to prevent reading in the usual manner.
