FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) — The Frank and Jane Gabor West Virginia Folklife Center at Fairmont State University is looking for volunteers to give tours of the center.

The center is offering training for volunteer docents on May 20. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact staff at wvfolklife@fairmontstate.edu or (304) 367-4403 by May 17.

Docents will provide tours and information about the center’s exhibits to school groups and other visitors. Docents should have flexible schedules and enjoy talking about history and culture, working with groups of all ages and answering questions.

The center is located in a repurposed historic barn on the university campus and has scholarly research, archives, community programs and events, workshops and exhibitions.
