AAUW members are invited to help at History Hullaballoos at the Rochester Public Library!
Do you like history? Do you like helping students? How about helping students with history research?
In early January, Rochester Public Library will be sponsoring 2 History Hullabaloos – workshops which will provide opportunities for students working on National History Day projects to come into the library and receive specialized assistance from local librarians, student mentors, and staff from Minnesota History Center. History Day projects are like Science Fair Projects: Students have a thesis, do research, and present a project about what they learned. The project can be a paper, a display, a website or a performance or documentary film. There are competitions at the school, regional, state and national levels. Students use library databases and the online catalog to find articles, books, and DVDs on a variety of topics.
The library is looking for volunteers to help students use library databases and print out information. If you aren’t familiar with the library databases, training may be available.
This year History Hullabaloos at scheduled on Wed Jan 4 from 4:00PM – 8:00PM and on Saturday Jan 14 from 10:00AM – 3:00PM at the Rochester Public Library. Contact Beth Nienow at the Rochester Public Library if you are interested in helping out.
