Enjoy reading aloud and empowering others? Volunteer Micki Cooney does!
"I like volunteering at the Audio Reading Service because not only am I helping people connect to their world, but I'm also making lasting and meaningful connections with other readers from my community for myself. And, the staff there are a wonderful group of funny, talented, kind, and generous people whom I find great pleasure being around!"
The Audio Reading Service broadcasts the live reading of both Fort Wayne daily newspapers and the recorded reading of over 40 other publications such as Prevention, The New Yorker and Consumer Reports. Micki reads People magazine.
This service is provided by the Allen County Public Library at no cost for people who have visual, physical, learning or language challenges to reading traditional print. It provides a means for listeners to stay connected to and included in the community, and improves their quality of life.
If your skills and passions match our needs, we’d love to have you join our team of volunteers! An interview and audition is required.
