Important Announcement About Your Radio Talking Book Receiver
Do you, or someone you know, listen to the Radio Talking Book through one of our radio receivers? Have you heard that as of September 30, 2020, these radio units will no longer receive the Radio Talking Book Signal?
Beginning on October 1, it will no longer be possible to listen to the Radio Talking Book through the stand-alone radio receivers. Instead, tune in to RTB through our Android or iOS apps, listen to the stream online, or tell your Alexa-enabled speaker to play Radio Talking Book. Learn about all the new ways to access your favorite RTB programming, and read about the reasons for these changes in our Frequently Asked Questions.
Stay Safe Minnesota
First, we hope that you are healthy and safe. These are challenging times for all of us, and focusing on health and safety is what matters most. As you know, in order to provide for the safety of Minnesotans, and to ensure that those on the front lines get the equipment and supplies they need, Governor Walz has issued a stay at home order. We’re writing to let you know about how this will effect our operations and services here at SSB, to let you know the best ways to be in touch with our staff, and to offer some resources that may be helpful.
