History Room volunteer positions open!
The Freeport Public Library and SCGS are always looking for a Volunteers to work in the History Room. Our FPL History Room has become known as the “GEM” of the County for research of all kinds including family, business, local history and local architecture.
Volunteers should have an understanding of genealogy and/or Stephenson County history, enjoy working with people and willing to donate their time for a 3 to 4 hour spot. This spot could be once per month, every other week, or hopefully on a weekly basis. What ever time you are able to contribute on a recurring basis will be gratefully appreciated and help keep our History Room consistently available for research.
SCGS and the FPL are flexible when Volunteers need to miss a day but we encourage the assigned Volunteer to try to contact another Volunteer to switch with or who may be willing to take their shift.
Training is provided and support is available during Volunteer hours.
Volunteering in the History Room is a rewarding experience and, especially for those involved in researching their own family histories, a tremendous resource and learning opportunity.
