Roseville Public Library
Purchased materials to enhance adult collection to better reflect Boomer interests. Created a computer assistance program and Brain Fit memory training program. Also participated in the State Library's Get Involved initiative, and leveraged the two projects to effectively revitalize the volunteer program and create five new volunteer-led services, including a grant writer, computer literacy instructor, and volunteer storytime program. Recruited and trained 20 new high-level volunteers to oversee these new volunteer services. Also developed volunteer training modules on leading a children’s storytime and providing quality customer service. Library staff attitudes about volunteers were transformed by experiencing first hand the value of utilizing Boomer volunteers in new high level library roles that created services the library would not have been able to offer otherwise.
