Traditionally library volunteers have completed tasks such as mending books, hosting book sales, or dusting shelves. This workshop will update participants on how to recruit, train, motivate and retain volunteers with specialized skills such as marketing, social media, or program support that library staff might not have time to develop or use. Topics will include why volunteers are an important part of the library workforce, examples of skilled volunteer descriptions, the fundamentals of a successful volunteer management program, and resources to support staff with limited time for volunteer management. By the end of the workshop, attendees will develop a volunteer job description to meet a need in their library.
