Hi and welcome to Librivox. Your reading is great there are just some edits needed please. I am not familiar with Garageband so can't advise how to make the changes.

The recording should be in mono not stereo

The volume is 93dB, which is too high. We aim for between 86 - 92dB, but ideally we would like it to be at 89 dB.
If you like, you can use the checker tool to verify volume and other settings https://cgjennings.ca/projects/checker/

It would help if you could remove some of the background noise again I am unable to advise as how to do this in Garageband.

Please could you carry out the edits then upload the file using the same file name. If you need any more help please just ask. Thanks
