Volunteer, Docent & Unpaid Internship Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in the Library of Virginia as a volunteer, docent, or intern. Strong community partnerships are valuable resources that help the Library of Virginia carry out its work. We welcome the support.

If you are interested in volunteering to transcribe historical documents, please go to Making History: Transcribe. An account is not required to participate, but is encouraged. If you need volunteer hours for school or court, an account is required to verify your work. Please contact us at makinghistory@virginiamemory.com. Include your preferred username and email address, and we will be happy to create an account for you.

Students enrolled in a college or university program may serve here as interns for course credit, while any member of the community may serve as a docent or volunteer. We will assess all interested candidates’ education, background, and interests to determine the best fit.
