Get Involved Collaborative: A Multi-State Approach to Increasing Volunteer Engagement Get Involved: Powered By Your Library began as a California statewide initiative designed to expand the visibility and contributions of skilled volunteers through public libraries. California’s success recently led to a 3 year grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services’ Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian program. California joins 3 other state library agencies – Arizona, Idaho and Texas – to increase the use of skilled volunteers in public libraries by replicating aspects of California’s successful Get Involved initiative. A Kick-Off webinar for the project was held on Tuesday, February 28, to let libraries from all 4 participating states learn about the benefits the national grant will bring to libraries in their states between now and October, 2019.
