Volunteers: Recruitment, Development, and Supervision


In order to manage a volunteer program successfully, supervisors must have a mind set that truly values the work of volunteers. A good management mind set will perceive volunteers as motivated and professional. The volunteers will be perceived as enhancements rather than threats to library jobs and as boosts to staff morale.

This course is designed to provide library staff the tools to create and effectively manage a successful volunteer program. This course is for 2 CE credits.


After this tutorial, you will be able to:

  • Identify and describe volunteer positions in your library.
  • Recruit and hire qualified volunteers.
  • Train volunteers to do meaningful and rewarding jobs.
  • Supervise, reward, and discipline volunteers.


This course is self-directed and assessments are graded immediately upon completion.
