With the help of volunteers, Kansas Talking Books records and produces select Kansas Notable Books, books by Kansans, books about Kansas, William Allen White Award nominees/winners, and children’s books. We also have volunteers who repair our talking book machines.

Volunteer impact by the numbers
  • 13 volunteers in 2017
  • 67 Digital Talking Book Machines repaired in 2017
  • 4 Kansas Interest Magazine Titles Produced
  • 824 Books Produced
  • 318 Kansas Produced Books on BARD
  • 13,472 BARD downloads since 2015

Please join us in thanking them for all of the hours they’ve given us over the past year. Their work and dedication to improving the lives of fellow Kansans is greatly appreciated.
