Volunteer at the Truman Library

Volunteering Like a Historian

Learn about new opportunities at Volunteer Open House on November 13

The Harry S. Truman Library and Museum has openings for enthusiastic volunteers who love history as much as they love kids. Last spring, the Truman Library piloted an all-new education program for third-grade students, Reading Like a Historian. Modeled after a program designed by the award-winning Stanford History Education Group, the pilot program was an overwhelming success. Now, the Truman Library is looking for volunteers for the Spring 2015 program launch.

Sound intriguing? Take a few minutes to learn more about this opportunity to share your love of history and inspire the next great generation.
