[SCV Historical Society] – Do you like history?
Do you want to contribute to the SCV community?
The Santa Clarita Valley Historical Society will be presenting its docent training class series on Saturday mornings during the month of November. If you would like to attend, or you know someone who would like to learn more about our local history, this is your chance. There is no charge, but it does come with strings.
If you take this class, you will be expected to donate at least one weekend day a month for at least a year. If you don’t like being a docent, that’s fine, but give it a chance. If you are more interested in giving your time in restoration or maintenance. There will be people available to discuss that with you. After completing the docent training, if it is clear that you like it, you might be invited to also work with the library committee or in the Archives.
This is perfect for people who love history, rare information and books. Our library will ultimately have close to 2,000 books when it opens.
Call 661-254-1275 for details on what it takes to become involved. You can also sign up for the exclusive docent mailing list to make sure you receive all the lates news, access to informational files and websites for docents. At the first class, we will give you a digital copy of our docent training manual. You can read it on your computer, or take it to a copy store and print it out.
