Produced five staff training sessions devoted to helping library staff become more comfortable working with Boomer volunteers in roles that more accurately reflect the interests and skills of this cohort. Also, developed four high-impact volunteer positions for the library talent scout, children's storyteller, tech concierge, and volunteer trainer. Staff also participated in the State Library’s related Get Involved initiative, which provided many of the volunteer tools this project had originally envisioned developing. Although some staff remain reticent about these new volunteer roles, many others have embraced the lessons learned through this project and are working with volunteers in new ways.
