Books are Only Half the Story

About the Talking Library: Nashville Talking Library is an audio-information service of Nashville Public Library. We read aloud current newspapers, magazines, books, and special programs to print-impaired residents. We are on the air seven days a week, at all hours. Listeners use special radios which we loan at no charge to eligible individuals in Nashville and Davidson County.

Volunteer assignment: Volunteers read newspapers live on the air. They also record books and magazines at our studios at Main Library downtown. Our recording hours are flexible, during regular business hours (Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm).

Current needs: We especially need volunteers who can read The Tennessean newspaper once each week, 9 am - 11 am, Monday - Friday.
