I am looking for LibriVoxers who would be willing to host a monthly group session for new people. The idea is to have a regularly scheduled group LibriVox zoom or Google Meet session that would meet in two time zones, say on the last Wednesday of each month. The commitment would be for at least six months so that people could learn about it and count on it being there.

If you have a Zoom account that is great but if not, you could use mine as host. I am just testing the water here but it would seem a good way to encourage new members, a platform to talk about their problems, ask for advice, and just share with others about LibriVox. We old timers know all about LibriVox, but can be bewildering to novices.

I'd like someone in Europe or Australia so that time zones can be offered. So what do you say? I already know that everyone reading this is a helpful volunteer at heart so think about it. All ideas, opinoons, objections and stuff are welcome. The objective would be to have a regularly scheduled zoom session every month in several time zones. Feeling adventurous? :D Image

Phil,

I just saw this. You may get some more interest if you post this on the LibriVox Facebook page, too.

Hi Mary. It seems that this is not an attractive idea at all. :? Well, it was worth a try. I will try our Facebook page.

How about putting it on the LibriVox Suggestions, Comments, etc page? (Or whatever it's called) More people might look at it there.
