The Community Managed Libraries (CML) Peer Network is hosting a workshop in Community Engagement and Volunteering on 30th of April 2019 at the Sheffield Library.  The session will be facilitated by Peter Ranken from the Archibald Corbett Community Library and other CML Peer Network colleagues.

The session uses real life learning, case examples, group exercises and best practice from community managed libraries and elsewhere. It shares tools and strategies for effective community engagement; walks you through the volunteering resource developed by Archibald Corbett and some resources from the Libraries Taskforce, and covers approaches to recruiting, developing, sustaining volunteers plus some succession management strategies. The session also explores ways to embed diversity and inclusion into community engagement and volunteering activities.

A short Network Meeting will be held at the end of the session to introduce you to the Community Managed Libraries Peer Network, some of the work we are doing/planning, our evolving membership programme and how to get involved.

The session is Free and you can book your place through Eventbrite using this link: 

We look forward to welcoming as many of you to our Workshop and Network Meeting.
