The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Kentucky Talking Book Library is part of the Kentucky Department for Libraries & Archives in Frankfort.
The Kentucky Talking Book Library needs volunteers to create special audiobooks for people who are blind, have low vision. or are physically unable to read print. We use the talents of local volunteers to record books about Kentucky or by Kentucky authors that would otherwise not be available to our users. We need help editing recordings for quality and accuracy, and will provide one-on-one training. Editors may progress to monitoring recording sessions or audition to narrate books. Talking Books are sent to about 4000 readers in Kentucky and are also available to over 700,000 users nationwide. Without the help of volunteers, wonderful books by Kentucky writers such as Jesse Stuart, Wendell Berry, Jan Watson, and more would not be available for people who can't read regular print.
