Volunteer at the Library of West Texas
Become a Regular Volunteer Today!
Our volunteers are a group who believe that education and printed material should be accessible to everyone. We have a constant need of volunteers to read general subjects such as history, psychology and literature. We also need individuals who have a thorough knowledge of any science or technical subject such as law, medicine or engineering.
We ask that you have a willingness to commit approximately two hours a week, during library hours of operation, on a regular basis. When you volunteer at the Recording Library of West Texas, you will leave with a smile on your face, knowing that you helped someone.
We first ask volunteers to come in and record an audition. Don’t worry – this isn’t as scary as it may sound. You’ll simply read a few paragraphs. Our new state-of-the-art digital system makes recording easy. All volunteers are thoroughly trained in how to record digitally and reading techniques.
Midland high school students have the chance to earn community hours for scholarships at Midland College. One of our volunteers won $500 in an essay contest, writing about her experiences volunteering for us. Please read here.
