Volunteering at the Library

Filed under: Uncategorized — rmlblog @ 12:14 am

People often ask if we need volunteers at the library. We already have people who put away the books when they are returned and do the shelf-reading. There are some projects in the Reference Department, however, for people who are interested in history, research and computers. These projects are perfect for a person who is a self-starter and isn’t looking for the social aspect that some jobs involve. (Not that we aren’t social — libraries aren’t the quiet places they once were.)

  • Digitizing the Historical Commission’s descriptions of historical houses in North Attleboro. We had a gentlemen start this project and get it organized, but we need people to keep entering the information. Also we’d like to add photos of the houses to the database.
  • Indexing our local history books. We’d like to have the names and places that are mentioned in the books, North Attleboro Then and Now and North Attleboro: An Affectionate History put into a searchable list.
  • Indexing the pictures we have of the WWII veterans.

If you are interested in helping with any of these projects, stop by the library to talk to Maggie.
