Get involved with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission
The Friends of Libraries & Archives of Texas advocates for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission among the public and government leaders, striving to increase the visibility and awareness of its statewide library services and historical preservation and access of the Texas State Archives.
The Friends fundraises to expand the special collections and services of the State Library and Archives and to fund archival exhibits and preservation of historic artifacts. The Friends fosters development and growth of local groups in support of local libraries and archives in Texas and supports the efforts of local groups and State Library and Archives staff.
Volunteering with the Talking Book Program is an interesting, rewarding experience that produces materials that benefit Texans with disabilities. By donating their time and energy, volunteers make an invaluable contribution to the thousands of Texans who are unable to read standard print.
Volunteers of the Talking Book Program gain valuable experience in a professional recording environment, receiving training and opportunities that are rarely offered at commercial broadcasting or recording facilities.
