Volunteering at the Center

Bud and Paula
Our commitment to preserve a record of Southwest history is limited by resources of staff, facilities and time. We highly value our volunteers in continuing our work.

Preparing artifacts, papers, and books for use by researchers is the most expensive operation of a repository. Adults of all ages have found great satisfaction in helping the Center tackle a particular project. It might be photographing and inventorying a collection of artifacts, scanning in barcodes to be attached to objects, indexing a ledger or a newspaper, processing a small collection...there are endless projects awaiting an eager volunteer.

To inquire about volunteering:
Contact the Curator for museum projects.
Contact the Archives Manager for photographs, postcards, and special collections projects.
Contact the Librarian if you are interested in staffing the circulation/reference desk, shelving, and projects related to the book collection.
