On Saturday 10th June the Bowes Museum celebrates the 125th anniversary of its official opening. As part of the events to mark the occasion, we are offering visitors the opportunity to come to the Library and Archives Reading Room. We’ll have displays about the work we do, including the First World War Commemoration Project. If you could spare some time to help out – just an hour would be great – please let me know. We need people to ‘meet and greet’ visitors in the entrance hall, bring them up to the Reading Room and talk to visitors about the project – not necessarily the same person doing all three roles! Training will be given and there will be other volunteers around to help.
This is a great chance to raise awareness about the project and to meet other volunteers – perhaps find out about parts of the project new to you.
I’m on leave until Monday 5th June but I will check my emails in the meantime.
