Indexing:  It isn’t just the census

Ever thought about volunteering, but you can’t come to the library?  Maybe your time is short and you just can’t commit to a certain time each week, but you still want to help.  Are you interested in old records?  Are you interested in various types of records?  Do you use the computer?  It sounds like “indexing” might be just the right volunteering project for you.  Come hear from an experienced indexer/arbitrator about the thrills of indexing.  Bring a laptop if you have one and get started today or practice in the library on one of ours.  Reservations required.  Please call 832-393-2600.  Adults/Teens.
