  • LibriVox volunteers read and record chapters of books in the public domain (books no longer under copyright) in the US, and make them available for free on the Internet. Practically, this means they record books published 95 full years ago or longer. All their recordings (including yours, if you volunteer for them) are also donated into the public domain.

    They record books in all languages.

    You do not need any prior experience to volunteer for LibriVox, nor do you need to audition or send them samples. All you need is your voice, some free software, your computer, and an inexpensive microphone (like the one on your phone!).

    All LibriVox activity (book selection, project management, discussion, etc.) happens on their Forum, and you’ll need to register there to join the volunteer effort. 

    You will share a copy of your audio recording with Mrs. Fireman; you earn the same number of hours as your completed audiobook (ex: a five-hour recording earns five service hours).
