Staffordshire Library Service was recently involved in a pilot volunteer training project and Julie, one of our volunteers at Brewood Community Library, agreed to take part.
Julie worked through 4 modules about ‘Making the most of your Library’, looking at presentation of stock and how to engage with customers in conversations about reading.
Julie says “It was quite challenging but I enjoyed doing the pilot as it did make me stand back and look at the library with fresh eyes”
As a result of the training, Julie gained valuable experience she can share with others, has the confidence to produce some fabulous displays and was able to feedback as part of the evaluation to develop the project further to benefit more volunteers in the future.
