Machine Sublending Agencies

Throughout upstate New York, twenty-one Sublending Agencies (mostly public library systems, along with some associations for the blind) help TBBL provide service. These agencies work with TBBL at the local level, promoting the program, forwarding completed applications, and helping library borrowers use the service.

They have a small stock of recorded books for emergency loan, and a supply of digital talking book players so that borrowers can exchange non-working machines locally. Library users obtain their basic service from TBBL in Albany, but these local contact points serve a number of valuable needs.
