In this 4 & 1/2 minute video, Johnson City Texas Library Director, Maggie Goodman, shares her successful experience in posting a need for IT volunteers on VolunteerMatch. (Johnson City has a population of 1,656, and the library's service area encompasses about 5,000 people). These skilled volunteers found Maggie's need through a special volunteer recruitment relationship between LinkedIn and VolunteerMatch. They are volunteering on a regular basis, and just agreed to help set up the Library's new Maker Space! The 1 hour 2017 webinar from which this clip is taken can be viewed in its entirety here: https://getinvolvedclearinghouse.org/resource/training-materials/management-engagement-skilled-volunteers-public-libraries
