Volunteer for Metro Archives



At Metro Archives, we are always delighted to welcome new Volunteers! 

We have many interesting volunteer opportunities for anyone who has a desire to become more involved in local history and historic preservation, records management, clerical or clean-up work.  And, we are always happy to tailor times and  projects to fit your particular schedule, interests, talents, experience and knowledge.  In addition, you can volunteer to help on a regular basis --or just till a particular project is completed.


We are open M-F 8:00 am-5:00 pm and do not usually offer volunteer opportunities outside those hours.


Below, are some projects we need help with at the current time.  Please contact us if you see something you are interested in:
