Audio-Reader accepting donations of vinyl records, CDs and more for annual benefit sale

Thursday, June 13, 2019

LAWRENCE — Anyone with vinyl records, CDs, gently used audio equipment or musical instruments gathering dust in their homes is encouraged to consider donating them to the KU Audio-Reader Network, a local nonprofit that serves the blind, visually impaired and print-disabled.

Donated goods will be featured in Audio-Reader’s annual benefit sale, For Your EARS Only, which will take place Sept. 13-14 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. The event is attended by hundreds of music lovers from surrounding areas, and the most popular items are rock & roll records and vintage or modern stereo equipment.

Proceeds from For Your EARS Only help Audio-Reader, based at the University of Kansas, provide free reading and information services for people who have difficulty reading standard print.

Donations can be brought to Audio-Reader, located at 1120 W. 11th St. on the KU campus, or to Sound Innovations, located at 1501 W. Sixth St. In Topeka, donations can be brought to Home At Last, located in the Fairlawn Plaza Mall at 5331 SW 22nd Place. Beginning July 1, those in the Kansas City area can bring their donations to KCUR during normal business hours, located at 4825 Troost, Suite 202, Kansas City, Missouri.

For more information about donating items to For Your Ears Only, call 785-864-4600 or visit the Audio-Reader website at

The Audio-Reader Network provides access to information for people who have difficulty reading standard print due to vision loss, physical or learning disability, mobility challenges and age. Audio-Reader fosters independence by connecting listeners with their communities and personal interests.
