Volunteering at the Braille and Talking Books Library
Volunteers make a difference for readers who are unable to read conventional print. We are always looking for new volunteers. This volunteer effort ensures that people who have reading disabilities have access to Braille or talking books.
Contact Betty Boyette (email@example.com) to volunteer or get more information. Phone number: 386-245-6043.
Volunteers assist by pulling recorded or Braille books from the shelves, attaching labels, and dropping them into a mail tub. Volunteers also assist by shelving returned books.
Volunteers assist with high-speed duplicating, labeling, and packing containers for mailing.
Volunteers inspect all books before they are loaned to readers.
Volunteers label and mail information on services to readers.
Volunteers repair and service playback and related equipment.
Volunteers assist in recording, monitoring, and reviewing college textbooks, monthly magazines, special projects, and recreational reading materials.

Volunteers must be certified by the Library of Congress in literary Braille transcription in order to produce books. Classes are held at the Library.
Volunteers are trained to do word processing which is then converted to Braille using Braille translation software.
