Record-A-Thon Harnesses Remarkable Volunteer Power, Bringing Books to Life for Students With Print Disabilities
Throughout the week of April 19 at RFB&D's Hollywood recording studio, hundreds of volunteer readers will put in extra hours at the microphone to transform printed textbooks into easy-to-navigate audio books - enabling students with print disabilities to learn through listening and enjoy educational success. RFB&D Hollywood Studio is located at 5022 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles. Hours April 19-22 (9:30a.m. to 9:30 p.m.) and April 23-24 (9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.).
