Library volunteerism is evolving. Gone are the days of looking for tasks to keep your volunteers busy. Libraries are now enlisting high impact volunteers who are bringing unique skills and expertise to enhance the library’s mission. Join us to learn how you can harness the power of skilled volunteers in your community and hear success stories of innovative volunteer engagement in libraries of all sizes and budgets.

Participants in this webinar will learn how to:

  • Identify what motivates potential local and virtual volunteers and how to ensure the right fit
  • Utilize skilled volunteers at the library
  • Design volunteer job descriptions and targeted recruitment plans
  • Earn staff buy-in and other strategies for successful volunteer engagement

Volunteers can be your strongest advocates, helping you gain funding and recruit human resources. This webinar will help libraries and library groups revitalize volunteer engagement and grow their community of advocates and supporters.
