[October 02, 2008]  SPRINGFIELD -- The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial is still 4 1/2 months away, but people who want to be a part of the 200th birthday celebration at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum need to plan a little further ahead.

A volunteer orientation program has been scheduled for Tuesday, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Multi-Purpose Room. Training sessions following the orientation will be at the same location on Oct. 14, 21 and 28, all at 5:30 p.m., and will feature Kathryn Harris, library director, and Tom Schwartz, state historian. This will be the final orientation program for prospective volunteers before the February 2009 Lincoln Bicentennial.

DonutsAbraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum volunteers are needed to greet visitors and assist with special events and educational programs. Volunteers may also take advantage of continuing education programs throughout the year.

For more information or to register for the Oct. 7 orientation program, contact Linda Bee, volunteer services coordinator, at 217-558-8872.
