North Dakota Public Library Trustee Manual.
North Dakota Library Association, Bismarck.
Intended as a guide for public library board members of the state of North Dakota, this manual provides basic information that all trustees should have and suggestions that will help them become more active and useful not only to their library and community but also to libraries and library services in the state. Subjects covered include goals, responsibilities of the board, its organization, library board and librarian relationships (in which context the responsibilities of both are enumerated), library policy manual with suggested contents, orientation of the board, friends of the library and bequests (with suggested activities and forms), and trustees and the legislative process (with lobbying guidelines). Appendices contain a checklist of questions concerning public library services that could be used for evaluation, a library bill of rights (after the Council of the American Library Association), sample trustee by-laws, and suggested further readings.
