Presidential Libraries Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers at the Presidential Libraries serve a variety of functions:
- Museum docents provide museum tours and visitor assistance to over 1 million visitors each year.
- Volunteers also work with library holdings, including textual records, audiovisual materials, oral history transcripts, and museum artifacts, by assisting with archival and curatorial projects.
- By answering telephones and preparing general information and educational mailings, volunteers provide invaluable support to the library staff and allow the libraries to serve the public in a more timely and courteous manner.
- Library volunteers work in educational outreach programs, traveling to schools and nursing homes to present historical dramas, educational workshops and informational slide shows.
The specific requirements for Presidential Library volunteers vary from site to site. If you are interested in volunteer opportunities at one of the Presidential Libraries, please contact the facility directly.
