Volunteering with Angry Hippos

Posted Thursday, 4th December 2014

The Angus Library and Archive are seeking a volunteer Exhibition Researcher for an upcoming exhibition on 17th – 20th century literature, with a working title of ‘Virtue and Vice and All Things Nice’.

This role would offer you the opportunity to gain skills and experience researching in an archive, handling rare books and curating an exhibition which will be open to the public.

The exhibition will include children’s literature, moralising literature, poetry, hymns, travel literature, and some of the more beautiful and bizarre items from the collection. To give you an idea of the sorts of things we have found so far, here is a very early 18th century angry hippo:
