Nevada Public Libraries: A Handbook for Trustees.
Clark, Joyce R.; Baker, Diane L., Ed.
This orientation manual serves as a general guide to the role of the public library trustee in the state of Nevada. It is designed to provide the trustee with basic information and to be used as a quick reference tool for helping the trustee do the job in an efficient and effective manner. The guide endeavors to provide a map by which the opportunities, responsibilities, and liabilities of serving as a public library trustee may be explored. Topics covered in this handbook include understanding the role and responsibilities of a public library trustee; ethics statements for library trustees; library board organization; library policies; financial management; planning and evaluation; public relations; and an overview of both the Nevada State Library and Archives organization and the Governor's Literacy Coalition Advisory Council. A list of suggested reading, a glossary, and state laws that affect public libraries are also included. (JLB)
