Our ability to make collections available for research in a timely manner wouldn’t be possible without the core of dedicated volunteers who have so graciously lent their time over the years. In addition to community volunteers, we maintain a robust internship program with several local colleges and universities.

Volunteers learn valuable skills in archival basics and non-profit operation, such
as:

  • digitization
  • processing collections
  • cataloging books
  • creating exhibits
  • helping with events
  • assisting with newsletters and press releases
  • assisting with grant applications
  • photography (and more!)
