Manual for Florida Public Library Boards.
Davis, Katherine E., Ed.
Intended as both a resource tool for assisting Florida public library boards in their functions and a training tool for new and inexperienced board members, this manual provides a means for compiling all information pertinent to board operations into one sourcebook and for keeping this material up-to-date. It is organized into eight chapters: (1) the library and its board, including the public library in Florida law and board responsibilities and powers; (2) organization--selection and appointment of board member's, bylaws, meetings, continuing education for board members; (3) library director, including his selection and board/director relationship; (4) planning; (5) policies; (6) budget, including funding sources; (7) public relations--organizing friends groups, lobbying, writing to Congressmen; and (8) the Florida State Library, which presents an organizational chart.
