Volunteers are needed for the DGS Volunteer Desk in the 8th floor Genealogy Section of the J. Erik Jonsson Central Library, 1515 Young Street.
Individuals who volunteer weekly for at least 2 hours each week receive free parking on the day they volunteer. Additionally individuals who do not reside in the city of Dallas receive a free Dallas Public Library card. This card not only enables them to check out books, but gives them ability to use the the library's online resources at home, such as Heritage Quest, Dallas Morning News archive, and Sanborn maps. Substitutes are also needed. Subs will receive free parking on the days they volunteer 2 hours or more. Please contact Patrick McKinney at the Dallas Public Library (214) 670-1433.
