Docents walk the walk and talk the talk
For Docents, a typical day at the Library involves plenty of walking and talking. No matter what the assignment, Docents provide information and insights along with a dose of history and interpretation. The standard shift is four hours during which Docents do what they do best–bring history to life sharing the legacy of the 37th President.
In the Oval Office, a replica of the President Nixon’s White House office, a Docent explains the famous room. In the China gallery Docents relate the story of the Nixon visit which became known as “The Week That Changed the World.”
Following scheduled rotations Docents move on to other locations like the birthplace where they share the story of the boyhood home of the Nixon family. At the helicopter there’s much to tell about the important and historic role of this helicopter and how it was rescued from oblivion. Because every day brings new visitors, every day is a new day.
