Thank you for your interest in volunteering! This is an important way that you can help the Dubai Audiobook Library to enable people of all ages to read books alongside their peers. You can choose what books to add, or speak with students and educators as to what books are needed for schools, and with friends and family about books they are reading for career enhancement, spirituality, or pure leisure reading.
More volunteer opportunities will be defined as the Library services evolve. Please check back regularly.
If you already have a volunteer account, please login. If you are new to the Dubai Audiobook Library, please sign up here. If you are a member already, please contact us to inquire about adding volunteering to your account.
You can help the Dubai Audiobook Library grow by scanning or retyping (transcribing) a printed book and then adding those files to Library. You will need a computer and word processing software. If you would like to scan printed books, you will need to have access to a scanner and Optical Character Recognition software. Above all, you will need a love of reading and the desire to help others.
After the scanned or retyped books are added to the Library, other volunteers will proofread them. They will review the text for errors and format the books so that they be read using phones, computers, digital braille devices, and more. A computer with internet access, word processing software, and a talent for detailed work are all you need. People of all ages, students and professionals, are encouraged to proofread books.
