Library guide about volunteer-led learning programs

These notes came from a discussion held at the Boston Gathering (September 2019) about creating volunteer-led learning circles and learning programs in a public library setting.

To expand volunteer-led learning circles in other libraries, librarians require the following:

  • Best practices
  • Anecdotal evidence of the volunteer pathway. For example, how they came in, where they went, what they did
  • Video of volunteer talking about their experience
  • Generalizable issues/ challenges and the solutions
  • Adaptations for training for different groups
