Daugavas Vanagi Talking Book Library supplies audio tapes of Latvian books. The library was established by E.Šmugājs to help those who coukd not attend Latvian performances and the vision impaired. It has continued this service for over 24 years for the benefit of Daugavas Vanagi members and for the wider Australian community.

The library collection includes works of writers such as Anšlavs Eglītis, A.Brigadere, A.Grīns, J.Jaunsudrabiņš, Janovskis, M.Alauksta, M.Ieviņa, J.Sārts and others. It also carries popular works from current Latvian writers as well as Latvian radio broadcasts from the early years of immigration to Australia. Most of the work has been recorded in Australia with but since the regaining of Latvian independance we now receive audio tapes recorded in Latvia.
