Utilizing Volunteers in Expanding Services to Disadvantaged Adults. Revised Edition.
Schmidt, Susan K.
One of a series on library services to disadvantaged adults, this guide suggests ways the public library can use volunteers to expand library services. The library should plan to its volunteer program and develop job descriptions for the volunteers. Then volunteers can be recruited through advertising or community organizations. Volunteers can be trained through pre-service workshops, on-the-job training, or role playing. The library must make someone responsible for coordinating and supervising volunteers. A bill of rights for volunteers, a list of five libraries with successful volunteer programs, and 10 suggested readings are included. (PF)
