Do you have a thirst for knowledge? Do you find researching family history fascinating? If so, volunteering at the Genealogy Desk at Central Resource Library might be the right fit for you. Dedicated, independent volunteers with an intermediate knowledge of Genealogy are needed to assist library patrons in their research. A basic knowledge of how to use the Dewey Decimal System and research databases (Johnson County Genealogy Society, Acestry.com, Heritage Quest, Family Search, etc.) are needed. Additional training will be provided prior to working independently. We are looking for a volunteer to serve weekly or bi-weekly at the desk on Saturday afternoons from 1-4PM.
Masks are recommended but not required for volunteering. A plexiglass partition is also in place at the Genealogy Desk.

About Johnson County Library
8700 Shawnee Mission Pkwy, Merriam, KS 66202, US
The purpose of the Johnson County Library is to provide access to information and promote life long learning and growth for all ages. Volunteers are vital to the daily operation of all 14 of our locations across Johnson County. You can volunteer in an ongoing position for 2-3 hours per week and a minimum 6 month commitment or you can sign up to join us for one time events as your schedule allows - join us!
Our primary need includes materials management. Volunteers assist with pulling books that need to be transferred to other locations. In addition, they assist with sorting and shelving of materials. If you enjoy working with books, this is the job for you!
