I am looking for tips on engaging with and coordinating library volunteers. This will be a focus of the next BIC Church Librarians Newsletter (BIC = Brethren in Christ).

  • We have a committee of about ten volunteers besides the two of us who run the library.  Some are scheduled to work on Sundays (generally two people for each Sunday); others come in during the week to do various jobs that need to be done.  Once a year, we have a lunch meeting on a Sunday morning after church, to go over any changes we've made, things of which they need to be reminded, explanations of upcoming events, and that kind of thing.

    When new people volunteer one of us will meet with them to train them in whatever area they will be working.  

    Do you have specific questions or issues you'd like addressed? I'm not sure what else to tell you.
