Two volunteers discussing bats with a boy and a girl at SHSMO in 2009

Volunteers at SHSMO’s annual Halloween event discuss Missouri bats with two young visitors.

Members, patrons, and friends of SHSMO are invited to participate in the volunteer service program! Friendly, energetic individuals who enjoy meeting people and working with the public can help in a number of ways.

Volunteer opportunities include repairing fragile newspapers prior to microfilming, making copies for patrons and staff, data entry, and assisting staff with a variety of tasks. Volunteers receive thorough training prior to undertaking an assignment.

Volunteering at SHSMO is a great opportunity to meet new people and make new friends while furthering SHSMO’s services and mission. Volunteers receive recognition and service awards for hours and length of service and participate in Society social activities.

Persons interested in volunteer opportunities can contact SHSMO at 573.882.1187 or by e-mail. Please be sure to include your name, address, city, state, and phone number.
