    • Volunteers How many volunteers do you need? • Hand out the free comics • Hand out and collect the punch cards • Bodyguard for Darth Vader • Photographer • Game master for the board games • Manager for the speakers • People who know where everything is in the library to help direct patrons
    • Where do we get volunteers? • Teen Advisory Board • Local Businesses with volunteer programs • Partner Organizations who will send staff • Friends and Family • Recruit regular patrons who would be interested • Local Student Organizations Volunteers
    • Things to Remember… • The volunteers are probably also fans. Relieve them periodically so they can get comics or pictures too! • Encourage them to cosplay for the event. They can always wear a name tag on their costume and it’s more fun. • Get group pictures with all of the volunteers and staff at the event. It’s fun and when you post it on Facebook it’ll make them feel like a valued part of the library. Volunteers
