Volunteer docents are being sought for the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda. A two-hour meeting for prospective docents will be held at the library on June 3 at 10:00 a.m. The museum is located at 18001 Yorba Linda Boulevard. Registration for the event can be made by emailing info@nixondocents.org.

"Once you complete training you will be expected to work a certain number of four-hour shifts during each month. Those who are employed or are students for more than 25 hours each week will work a minimum of two times each month. All others will work three times a month," said the Richard Nixon Library and Birthplace Docent Guild website.

Docents must be able to stay on their feet for periods of three and a half hours. They must complete five training sessions during which they will be on duty in uniform. Volunteers also need to pass a background check.

The museum is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is $16 for adults, $12 for those aged 62 or older, $10 for those between the ages of 12 and 17. For children between the ages of five and 11, admission is $6. Admission is free for active members of the military and children aged four or younger. Admission for retired members of the military is $10.

On May 24, the museum will open an exhibition Captured: Shot Down In Vietnam about the experiences of American prisoners of war during the War in Vietnam. The temporary exhibit, including 75 artifacts, is in honor of Ross Perot.
