Reader profiles are not required for Book clubs, please move on to the next section.
So we can send you appropriate books and to learn more about our members, we’d like some information about the people who will be benefiting from the books you are borrowing. This might be yourself or other adults or children in your care. You can add multiple reader profiles to your account and will be able to edit and delete these once you account has been created.
Names can be left blank.
Date of birth doesn’t have to be accurate but please select the correct year to ensure age appropriate books are sent.
We will require some additional information about the people who will be using our books. Once you have complete the registration form we will be in touch to find out a bit more about you and your members.
To help you get the most out of your library membership we send email updates. In these updates you’ll hear about exciting new Touch to See books and recommended reads, be inspired by stories from other library members, and be kept up to date with what’s going on at Living Paintings. Often there are useful ‘top tips’ and information about other services that could support you. You can opt out at any time.
Are you happy to receive our email updates?
As a charity we are committed to providing a free service for blind and partially sighted people so that it’s accessible to everyone who needs it. We rely on donations to be able to do this. Some library members like to be able to help if they can.
Are you happy to receive occasional emails about our fundraising?
We occasionally hold fun and interesting events, would you like to receive invitations to these events in your area by email?
You can change your communications preferences at any time by contacting us or updating your online account.
