Volunteer Away Your Library Fines: Reducing Barriers to Library Use Through One-Time Volunteer Events Webinar

One-time volunteer events can be intimidating, but they can also help you engage a whole new group of people to provide an avalanche of meaningful service to your library.

The San José Public Library’s Volunteer Away Your Fines Program leverages large, one-time volunteer opportunities to reduce economic barriers to Library use. Do you struggle to find opportunities for short term volunteers? Are you interested in starting a program where people can use volunteer service to waive library fines? This presentation will give you the strategies you need to empower a legion of one-time volunteers, and provide a pathway to continued Library use in the process. Topics will include: using community data to determine the scope of your program, gaining staff buy-in through an inclusive planning process, identifying appropriate roles for one-time volunteers, and creating an infrastructure to support large one-time volunteer events.
