VicTouch Training Tools
VicTouch is the library’s touchscreen volunteer sign-in system. It imports volunteer service hours directly into the library’s volunteer database. VicTouch stations are located at both the Downtown Library and Ladd Library. Here are some training resources for using VicTouch. If you have any questions, please contact Jessica or Lindsey.
Volunteer Annual Report
Each year, we publish a Volunteer Annual Report. This provides an overview of the impact of volunteers at the Library during that year. Thank you for being an important part of our past achievements, a meaningful contributor to our present success, and an invaluable part of our future! We would not be the Library we are today without the gifts of time and talent from our volunteers.

2020 Volunteer Program Communications Survey Results – In June 2020, a survey was sent to active volunteers to evaluate the effectiveness of the Volunteer Program’s communications. This report reviews the results of the survey.
2015 Volunteer Survey Report – In early 2015, a survey was sent to active volunteers to evaluate the program and the volunteer experience, and ways to improve both. This report reviews the results of the survey and outlines Action Items for staff to move forward with growing the program and enriching the volunteer experience. Our Action Items were a direct result of your comments. Thank you for helping us advance our program’s mission of developing exceptional volunteer opportunities to support and enrich the library through community engagement.
