Helping people who want to research local or family history using library resources within the community history centre at Wellington library.
Join a friendly team of volunteers who cover two drop-in advice sessions a week on a rota basis. Volunteers work in pairs to help customers with local history enquiries, those who are starting on their family trees or have 'hit a brick wall' and need a little signposting. Other tasks could include helping to create new library resources, other clerical tasks or stock promotion.There are additional opportunities to be involved with helping at the annual community history day, promoting community history projects with library staff, either within libraries or the community, and reminiscence sessions on various themes. Training and ongoing support is always given./p>
