The Public Library: A Guidebook for North Carolina Library Trustees.
Phay, Robert E.
The guidebook presents historical, legal, and practical information on the role of the board of trustees in North Carolina public libraries. Six sections detail the following: (1) matters relating to the powers and duties of trustees and to the internal operations of the board; (2) the relationship between the board and the chief librarian as it concerns policy formulation and execution; (3) the relationship between the board and the library staff with regard to staffing and organization; (4) financing, budgeting, and the restrictions involved; (5) statutory law regarding library networks, the advantages of networks, bookmobiles, and interstate compacts; and (6) the history, administration, services, and special functions of the North Carolina State Library. A bibliography provides both general and specific references of interest to the administrator, and includes a list of available films and filmstrips. The North Carolina Library Law, model bylaws for a library board of trustees, and suggested personnel policies comprise the three appendices. (FM)
