Finding and Training Volunteer Technology Instructors

This webinar will provide strategies for recruiting, training and retaining skilled volunteers who can help increase digital literacy skills in small and rural communities.

This event has passed.

Small libraries are often challenged to find the staff, skills, or time needed to meet growing community needs and demands for digital literacy training. Volunteers can help you meet these needs! Learn strategies from two successful statewide projects eager to share tools and curricula to help get volunteers ready for technology training in your small or rural library. California’s Get Involved: Powered by Your Library provides libraries with tools to recruit, train and retain skilled volunteers. And Guiding Ohio Online has created curricula for volunteers to deliver digital literacy training through computer classes and one-on-one computer assistance in libraries of all sizes. Project staff will share their expertise and experience to help you build the program that is right for your community.

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural and Small Libraries.

Presented by: Carla Lehn, Library Development Services, California State Library; Mandy Knapp and Evan Struble, Library Consultants, State Library of Ohio
