Volunteer with NNELS

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us! We wouldn't be a network without all the people who make us, and public libraries, happen.

We are currently not able to work with new volunteers but we hope that will change soon. Thank you kindly for your interest and for your patience. Please check back here for changes in the coming months.

Our volunteer projects:

NARRATE! Pilot Project

An opportunity for libraries to connect their volunteers with NNELS to record an audiobook. This Pilot is currently underway with 10 libraries across Canada. Three portable recording kits have gone out to libraries and online training, resources and direct support are available for all participating libraries. If your library is interested in participating in a future NARRATE! project please fill out the library sign-up

Volunteer to record an audiobook at home

Do you enjoy reading out loud? Have access to a basic home recording set up? Want to help provide access to books for people with print disabilities? If yes, then we would love to hear from you! NNELS receives requests from its members every day for human narrated audiobooks and we would love your help in continuing to provide that resource. Don't worry if you have never recorded an audiobook before, we can point you in the right direction for a simple equipment set-up and the skills and tools you'll need to narrate like a pro. If you are interested in volunteering fill out this reader sign-up.
