The Missouri State Library, as a department of the Office of the Secretary of State, will:
Strive to ensure that all Missourians, including those who cannot use print, have equal access to library services.
The mission of Wolfner Talking Book and Braille Library is to provide informational, educational, and recreational materials in non-standard print formats to Missourians who are unable to use standard print materials due to physical impairment, and to provide disability-related information to the public.
Volunteers play a vital role in providing library services to Missouri citizens with blindness, low vision or other conditions that make the use of standard printed materials difficult or impossible. Volunteers make generous contributions of time, talent, and energy. These contributions are invaluable in accomplishing our mission to provide reading materials to Missourians who cannot use regular print.
Volunteers are an integral part of the Wolfner program. They bring a multitude of skills and talents, which better enable us to serve the community. They provide new perspectives, inspire us with their enthusiasm and commitment, and give us access to resources that would otherwise be unavailable to us. They bring to us the community’s point of view, and take back to the community word of our services.
