Upcoming Webinar on Skilled Volunteers in Public Libraries

2017 September 20

Thanks to a 3-year Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) has partnered with the state libraries of Idaho, Arizona and California to provide training and resources to assist public libraries in recruitment, management and retention of skilled volunteers. As part of the project, TSLAC invites library staff to join Carla Lehn, Get Involved Collaborative Consultant and Trainer, on Thursday, September 28 at 2pm CDT for this informative webinar as she discusses the need to move from traditional volunteer “management” to volunteer “engagement”. By the end of this webinar, participants will also know how to plan for and find skilled volunteers to expand library capacity as well as know where to find more resources on this subject.
