Other activities may include tasks for organizing and maintaining the archives, such as inventory, cataloguing, digitization, and database entry and management.
The archives is open to the public on Tuesdays 10:00am-2:00pm, but work is also available on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10:00am-2:00pm.
This volunteer posiiton is ideal for an organized and detailed individual with a genuine interest in local history and geneaology. Basic computer skills a plus.
