Do you like history? Enjoy organizing papers and photographs? Can you scan? Well, helping us digitize our archives and organizing them could be just the project for  you! Don't worry. We will train you! If you are available at least 10 hours a month, we can set you on a course of adventure in our archives. Who knows what you might discover there!

Do you like teaching and learning yourself? We could use your help to prepare for and to present education programming for our local schools! Many third graders come here to discover their local history. We have the programs, the handouts and the powerpoint presentations... we could use some help preparing the paperwork and presenting various activities to kids when they come here! Are you in? This type of activity would require someone now and then. We will train you!
