Volunteering at the Washington Talking Book & Braille Library makes a difference in people’s lives! More than 200 people donate over 12,000 hours each year to assist in making various Library programs available. WTBBL is committed to creating an accessible, supportive environment that recognizes diversity and cultural competence as integral components of excellence. We invite volunteers to contribute to that goal and believe our environment is enhanced when diverse groups of people with diverse ideas come together to collaborate.

Volunteer Appreciation Event 2022: David Laskin

In honor of our amazing volunteers we hosted an online talk on April 20, 2022, with local author David Laskin. He discussed his book The Family: Three Journeys into the Heart of the Twentieth Century, an epic history told through the riveting story of one extraordinary Jewish family and their destinies in Europe and America.
