Trust, Teamwork and Tools; A Handbook for Colorado Library Trustees.
Colorado Library Association, Denver.
The trustee needs to continue the traditional responsibility of fulfilling a public trust and, in addition, must accept the new commitments to meet the services people are demanding. Economically and practically, this means learning to think in terms of total library service to the community, the region, the state and even the nation. This handbook is intended to define the role of today's library trustee in Colorado. Section I -- The Trust, contains discussions of duties and responsibilities, statutory provisions, home rule cities, types of libraries, trustee's tasks, and budgets and the library board. Section II -- The Teamwork, includes the local library board and its relationship to its members, the librarian, the public, its governing bodies, the Federal Government, the state library, and the public library systems. Section III -- The Tools, is composed of seven appendices which include: The 1947 Library Law, home rule cities in Colorado, a speech by Ted Tedesco, guidelines for a library policy, freedom to read statement, Library Bill of Rights, and steps trustees can take.
