    • Info: The Main Branch of the Library is looking for a volunteer to help convert CMstory.org – a project of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library designed to bring the area’s local history and more to you through the World Wide Web. A criminal background check will be done at no cost to the volunteer, which is standard procedure for all Charlotte Mecklenburg Library volunteers. You would not be working with the public, using your own equipment, or writing any content. This volunteer(s) will need to have:
      • Great PC computer skills
      • Working knowledge of Drupal (or was willing to learn)
      • The conversion of the project is from www.cmstory.org.  Each exhibit needs to be redone in a Drupal format.  Proofreading of those exhibits already finished is also needed.

For ongoing volunteer opportunities at your local Charlotte Mecklenburg Library branch, you can search their calendar for events, training, and classes using the “Computer Skills/Technology” and “Digital Inclusion” tags. Additionally, you can use this link: http://bit.ly/2q3X4XP to view these results directly.
