Volunteer Opportunities

"Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much."

The LaSalle County Historical Society could not accomplish everything we do without the help of our many volunteers! Volunteers are our bloodline and what keeps our museum campus up and running.
We are looking for all types of volunteers; whether it be donating some time to become a docent at one of our museum complexes, collections assistance, helping with our 4th Grade School Program, volunteering a special skill (basket weaving, pottery, looming, etc) we would like your help. Anyone can volunteer!!! Service hours are awarded for your volunteer time at the museum.
