The North Dakota State Library offers many unique programs for persons with physical, visual, or reading impairments. Without the support from our volunteers, these services would not be possible. Talking Books provides talking books, magazines, and large print to North Dakota citizens who are unable to read standard print materials. Talking Books also manages the Dakota Radio Information Service (DRIS), which provides daily broadcasts of local newspapers and special programming. Both of these services rely on volunteers to keep the daily operations running smoothly. Others volunteer with our Circulation Department, helping us keep track of our materials. Some of the volunteer positions include:
Radio Announcers - Read newspaper articles, grocery ads, and feature columns for the DRIS broadcast.
Book and Magazine Narrators - Record fiction and nonfiction books, North Dakota Magazines, and other requested materials.
Circulation Assistants - Assist staff with the daily circulation of talking books. These duties include shelving, book inspection, tape repair, and a host of other duties.
If you live in the Bismarck area and are interested in volunteering, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at 701-328-2185.
