We loan books and magazines in audio format and specialized playback equipment postage free. This service is provided to Nevada residents unable to read or hold standard printed material due to a visual or physical limitation for personal enrichment that all may read.
Recording volunteers assist the Recording Program produce books and magazines about Nevada and by Nevada authors. The recordings are done in two sound-proof recording booths within the library. The Recording Program Coordinator will schedule an applicant for an interview and booth time. The two volunteer positions available are for narrator and reviewer.
1) Narrators should have the ability to read with a clear and distinct voice, to sustain a consistent level of verbal energy over a long period of time and to read in a conversational manner. A commitment to complete a book is extremely important; this includes time for narration and corrections. A time commitment of two hours per week is desired and speeds the production process along. In addition to a short interview, narrators will be asked to read a one page story.
2) Reviewers listen to a narrator's recording noting when and where errors, mispronunciations and extraneous sounds are made. Good hearing, attention to detail, concentration skills and basic computer skills are necessary.
