INDIANA – Indiana Voices, a program of the Indiana State Library’s Talking Book and Braille Library, is currently seeking volunteers to narrate Indiana-related audiobooks.
Together with Indiana State Library staff, volunteers bring Hoosier words and voices to persons who cannot use standard printed materials due to a visual, physical, or reading disability and live in the state of Indiana or across the country. Narrators will begin work on their titles outside of the studio. Once prepared, volunteers will arrive at the Indiana State Library in downtown Indianapolis and begin recording their narrations.
Indiana is made up of many individual voices, representing different Hoosier communities, identities, and experiences, all of which contribute to authentic interpretations of Indiana books. Volunteers from all the different communities and cultures in the state of Indiana are invited to apply. Volunteers are expected to work at least one hour every other week.

Those interested in learning more about volunteering with Indiana Voices as a narrator or as a monitor should visit the Indiana Voices website or contact Hannah Arnold, Indiana Voices director, via email.
