Revitalizing Your Friends Group & Engaging Volunteers

It often seems that sustaining and growing Friends groups can be even harder than establishing such a group in the first place. Over the years you may find your general membership stagnant or even dropping. You may come to realize that the work for programs, book-sales, and other activities is always performed by the same small group of people – and they’re not getting any younger! You may find it more and more difficult to bring in new officers and new “worker bees” to keep the Friends group active and vital. It’s time to come up with a way to revitalize your group. Learn how today’s volunteers are different from volunteers in the past, what they want from service opportunities, and how libraries and Friends can attract them.
