Local History Volunteer Opportunities
We Remember...Marian "Mernie" Hines
The Library and the Northville community fondly remember Mernie Hines, a dedicated Library volunteer, who passed away in 2011. Mernie worked diligently on the Northville Record Index project for many years, ensuring the excellent Index that patrons use today. She was instrumental in obtaining two grants, and trained and assisted volunteer indexers. The Index has been a valuable tool for local history buffs and general researchers over the past 20 years. Her volunteer work over a 10-year period contributed to the success of the Library's valuable Local History collection.
Northville District Library's Local History/Genealogy Collection has benefited from community members and organizations who have donated time and/or funding towards making our collection what it is. If you would like to volunteer, here are just a few ways you may do so.
Northville District Library
The Library has a number of local history projects in need of volunteer help.
Contact the library and see if a current project sounds interesting!
Northville Genealogical Society
The Northville Genealogical Society has donated their book and magazine holdings to the library's genealogy collection and have donated funds for purchasing additional genealogical materials. During designate times, or by appointment, members also donate their time to assist researchers.
Northville Historical Society
The Northville Historical Society maintains an archive at historic Mill Race Village on Griswold Street, across from Ford Field and offers many opportunities for those interested in volunteering.
