LibriVox Wants You to Read & Record Audiobooks

By Dianna Dilworth 

LibriVox is looking for volunteers to read and record public domain books for their audiobook library.

The non-profit site selects chapters of books that are in the public domain to read, then releases the audio files for free online. Check it out:

Volunteering for LibriVox is easy and does not require any experience with recording or audio engineering or acting or public speaking. All you need is a computer, a microphone, some free recording software, and your own voice. We accept all volunteers in all languages, with all kinds of accents. You’re welcome to volunteer to read any language you speak, as long as you can make yourself understood in it.
