  • About the Instructors

We often hear about "skilled volunteerism" but what does it mean and how can it help to build capacity in your library? How do you plan for and recruit skilled volunteers? What changes might you need to make to your traditional volunteer services to be successful with skilled volunteers? During this on-demand webinar, you'll hear from libraries who have been participating in the "Get Involved: Powered by Your Library" volunteerism initiative. Learn about their successes and how to plan your next move.

This archived webinar was originally presented July 22, 2015.
