Public Library Director Toolkit


Almost every library depends on volunteer help at some time or another. Some libraries may use volunteers for shelf-reading, book sanitization, or mending while other libraries use volunteers to help with circulation during evening hours or busy seasons. Some libraries in North Dakota are run entirely by volunteers year-round! 

See below for some resources to help you recruit, engage, and effectively manage your volunteers.

Many of these resources and programs are funded under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
