Volunteer Tasks Currently Available



Book Inspection Volunteer


Come join our team...that all may read! Talking Books are important to people who are Blind or have disabilities that keep them from traditional book reading. Here is an opportunity for you to help. Just one and a half hours each week.
We need a volunteer who likes a task that is very "hands-on", has certain details to follow, and a huge sense of accomplishment when the task is completed. Talking books need to be inspected when they are returned.
Our book inspectors receive a lot of satisfaction helping Talking Book and Braille Services get the books ready for circulation. Daily, we process about 1,200 books both digital cartridges and cassette tapes, check them back into the library and then check books out again. We need a volunteer who likes detail work and enjoys improving the speed to do the task while retaining accurate work.
We have 2 shifts to fill...Mondays at 1:30-3:00 and Thursdays at 1:30-3:00. If you are interested to learn more, contact Robin Speer at 503-378-5014 robin.d.speer@state.or.us. Come join our team...that all may read!
