Alabama state archives to offer docent training in February

The Alabama Department of Archives and History in Montgomery will hold docent training on Monday, Feb. 27  from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

Docents are volunteers who conduct tours of the archives’ museum. Potential docents need to be willing to give at least six tours a month. Many of the tours are given to school children across the state.

Training will include an overview of museum subject matter and interpretation techniques, a detailed museum tour, a description of a typical tour day, and lunch.

For more information or to reserve a place in the training class, call 334-353-4702 or  send an email to Kelly.hoomes@archives.alabama.gov, by Friday, Feb. 17.
