Recruiting and Training Volunteers for Library Advocacy

Wednesday, August 20, 2014 - 2:00pm

 

This webinar presents a sustainable volunteer training and management model to apply when libraries have big dreams but lack the staffing required to pursue them.

Like many libraries, Michigan’s Herrick District Library found itself with a leaner staff facing more responsibilities in recent years. The idea of sending employees out of the building to staff community awareness events seemed like a challenging concept. This Michigan library not only developed a volunteer force to meet the challenge, but they now have a sustainable volunteer training and management model to apply in future situations where the library has big dreams but lacks the staffing required to pursue them. Come hear from a Geek the Library shining star, and learn how to engage your community’s volunteer force.
