Reading is amazing for anyone's mind, but sometimes it can get repetitive. Instead, residents can achieve a sense of accomplishment by creating an audio version of a written work for someone else to enjoy.
LibriVox is a service that allows individual volunteers to record any number of written works in the public domain for others to access for free as audiobooks! Signing up as a volunteer is free and you do not need any prior experience to volunteer for LibriVox. All you need is a voice, some free software, a computer, and an inexpensive microphone.
Here is the volunteer page at LibriVox for more information.
You'll also find an information page about recording from LibriVox for more information.
