Free Currency Readers

Beginning in September 2014, the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS), partnered with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, began a four-month pilot program to distribute free currency readers to NLS patrons. These small devices, also known as iBill Talking Bank Note Identifiers, use either speech, a tone, or a vibration to alert visually impaired or blind persons to the amount of their paper currency. To receive a free money reader NLS patrons can call or email the Mississippi Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped:


Not an NLS patron? Give the number above a call and our staff can get you started on the application process.
Once you request your free money reader, it may be a few months before you receive it. You will be placed on a list that will be sent to NLS. We are hoping that the money readers will be sent to patrons in the late Fall. There is a limit of 1 money reader per patron. Beginning in January 2015, the money readers will have their national rollout and become available for U.S. citizens who have visual impairments or are blind.
