Public libraries thrive on their volunteer base, and Olivia Allen, Library Public Assistant at McMinnville Public Library, wanted to create a brochure that would help her library recruit the best and the brightest.

I made this so we could have something to hand out to people interested in volunteering. Before we had this, we would give them the application to fill out. I wanted there to be something they could look at to get an idea of what volunteering is like instead of a big intimidating form. We really simplified all the information we could stuff onto the brochure, so this way it is easy to understand and it doesn’t feel like we expect them to make a decision right away. It also states the volunteers keep the library running, which is so true, and that is definitely the first impression we want to give. I used Canva to create this design.

You can find this brochure on the Librarian Design Share Google Drive.
