Library Cataloger Volunteer

The Iowa Genealogical Society needs a volunteer to place new catalog cards in the cabinet drawers.  This person needs to be detail oriented using the alphabet.  Training will be provided.  You may do this at your convenience during the library’s open hours.  Estimated time needed is about 4 hours per month.
