Find yourself bored while sheltering in place? Or specifically miss volunteering due to in-person restrictions?

The Boston Public Library might be able to assist you, no matter where you live.

The library inherited about 40,000 items from abolitionist William Lloyd Garrison, and it’s seeking help transcribing the various letters, pamphlets, books, memorabilia, and newspaper issues housed in its Anti-Slavery Collection.
