Webinar - Innovative Use of Skill-based Volunteers in Public Libraries

Date: Wednesday, October 19, 2011
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Place: Online
Cost: Free


There is a growing number of younger members of our communities who are highly skilled with technology and the internet but view local public libraries as nice community amenities with little relevance to their world. There is also a notable increase in semi-retired, computer literate, actively engaged Baby Boomers. These two groups can be tapped to become the new volunteer base for libraries. By engaging these "new volunteers," libraries are helping to build vibrant sustainable community support for their library. This webinar identifies the critical issues and plan of action necessary to engage skilled-based library community volunteers.
