[January 27, 2020]    SPRINGFIELD – Anyone who wants to help tell the world about America’s greatest president will get a chance when the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum welcomes new volunteers.

 A Feb. 5 information session will spell out how to join the team that greets visitors, assists at events, helps researchers and much more.

The one-hour session begins at 5:30 p.m. in the presidential library’s classroom (112 N. Sixth Street., Springfield). Learn about the volunteer opportunities available and what you need to know about the library and museum.

Volunteers will be asked to attend three additional training sessions: Wednesday, February 19; Tuesday, February 25; and Tuesday, March 3. Each session starts at 5:30 p.m. and lasts approximately three hours.

Volunteers contribute an average of 40,000 hours of service each year to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, making the experience better for those who visit the hugely popular institution.
