LGBTQ Iowa Archives & Library


The LGBTQ Iowa Archives & Library runs on volunteers. Whether keeping our doors open, conducting and transcribing oral histories, running community groups, or planning events – our volunteers are integral to our operations.  We are always looking for individuals who wish to donate their time and talent to our work.

From consistent, weekly shifts to our larger volunteer pool for pop-up opportunities and events, there are numerous ways to share your time in community with us.

Fill out this survey and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch. Please note that as a volunteer run organization, it can take us some time to coordinate new volunteer opportunities, we appreciate your patience and understanding.
