Volunteering at WTBBL

Volunteering at the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library makes a difference in people’s lives! More than 125 people donate over 7,500 hours each year to assist in making various Library programs available. WTBBL is committed to creating an inclusive, supportive environment that recognizes diversity and cultural competence as integral components of excellence. We invite volunteers to contribute to that goal and believe our environment is enhanced when diverse groups of people with diverse ideas come together to collaborate.

We are currently recruiting for the following volunteer positions. Click on each to learn more.

*WTBBL is committed to providing authentic voices for the books we narrate. We are currently recruiting for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), Asian-American and Pacific Islander (AAPI), Latinx, and LGBTQIA+ voices to narrate our books written by BIPOC, AAPI, Latinx, and LGBTQIA+ authors. See the books that need narration.
