Colorado Library Association, Denver.
This basic reference on the responsibilities and opportunities of library trustees provides information on the public libraries of Colorado and how they are established, operated, and funded, as well as clues to needed information--i.e., some philosophy, many facts, opinions, recommended practices, and suggestions. Chapters focus on the types of libraries, the Colorado State Library, the legal base and governance of public libraries in the state, cooperation and networking, roles and responsibilities of trustees, policies and policy manuals, affirmative action, intellectual freedom, Friends of the Library, and volunteers. Appendices include sample bylaws for both public and combined school/public libraries and statements of policy on personnel, finances, and intellectual freedom. A glossary and an index are provided.
