Volunteering

Our story, Friends logo 12-3-16 Mods

The museum offers a range of opportunities for volunteering, always taking the volunteer’s interests and skills into account.

EVENT VOLUNTEER:

YOU are needed – please volunteer for an event in 2018! Late in 2017, Dennis McBride – director of the Nevada State Museum, Las Vegas – asked the Friends to help with museum events moving forward.

Volunteer times, as indicated in the pull-down,

usually begin a half hour before the event’s start

and end 15 to 20 minutes after the event is over.

CROWD SOURCING – CARD CATALOG PROJECT:

At the drop of a hat, you can assist the museum by transcribing index cards from the museum library’s card catalog. Use your smart phone or a home computer with Internet service. Do it for a few minutes, or longer if you like. Every bit helps. To get started, watch this video, or go directly to www.nsmlv.org/omeka:

 


THE MUSEUM’S GREATEST NEED FOR VOLUNTEERS IS IN TWO AREAS:

— volunteers to staff the front desk in museum’s lobby (even for a two-hour span)

— volunteers to help run the museum’s classroom for walk-in families and school groups

If you would like to volunteer at the front desk or in the education department, please contact the Friends at info@nsmlv.org.
