Queen's Diamond Jublilee Award

Calibre Audio Library has over 130 volunteers in Aylesbury who help in various aspects of the library service including: inspecting, receipt and posting of audio books to members.  70 professionally trained volunteer readers located across the UK annually record over 200 unabridged titles.

The nomination was supported by Calibre patron and author, Anne Fine, OBE, who said: “ As the members’ shoals of grateful letters – and often, at the end of their lives, tiny appreciative legacies - testify, the sheer efficiency and warmth of the volunteers’ response to their needs bring them enormous comfort and a sense of belonging to a truly caring community. The importance of this cannot be underestimated.”

Michael Lewington, Calibre Audio Library director, says:  “This wonderful award recognises the dedication of our volunteers and how much we and our members value their contribution to our charity.”
