Abstract

This presentation will link past and current volunteer experiences using Plano Public Library’s volunteer program model as an example. By the end of this presentation, attendees will understand how to gamify their library volunteer program, subsequently supporting participants with work experience and life skills through positive involvement and awareness of their contributions to the community. Additionally, we will demonstrate how the gamified volunteer experience increases the motivation and enjoyment of volunteers while supporting staff productivity, strengthening relationships with your library’s volunteer community, and improving staff awareness of volunteer impact.
