On Order



Volunteers are essential to a successful library program--and at a time when deep budget cuts are the norm, there are many libraries that depend on the help of dedicated volunteers, who do everything from shelving books to covering the phones. Whether these are friends, trustees, or community members, managing them effectively is the key to harnessing their enthusiasm for the benefit of your library. In the new second edition of Managing Library Volunteers authors Preston Driggers and Eileen Dumas completely overhaul their classic work, presenting a top-to-bottom toolkit for recruiting, interviewing, training, supervising, and evaluating volunteers. This book includes

Tips for recruiting volunteers from your community by using social networking, electronic posting, and the library website Principles of volunteer administration, including the rights and duties of volunteers Important legal and risk management issues facing libraries Dozens of sample job descriptions, application forms, parental permissions, sign-in sheets, planning checklists, exit surveys and much more

Quality volunteers can make a world of difference in today's library, and this hands-on guide gives you everything you need to maximize your library's services and build a bridge between your library and the community it serves.

Kitap Listesi Değerlendirmesi

In the almost 10 years since the first edition of this classic work was written, library technology and services have changed dramatically. Outreach to volunteers now includes social-networking sites and electronic postings, and new volunteers are pulled in from these virtual sources as much as from participation in storytimes or book groups. Updated to reflect current trends, this readable handbook still covers tips for recruiting (expanded to deal with life online); the principles of volunteer administration (including volunteers' rights and duties); legal and risk-management issues; and necessary forms, job descriptions, checklists, and surveys. Library staff will want to update to this more current treatment, which remains the title of choice on this topic.--Welton, An. Copyright 2010 Booklist
