District Library Law: A Guide for Establishing & Funding a District Library in Michigan. 1994 Edition.
Michigan Library, Lansing.
This handbook was assembled to aid Michigan communities in the establishment of district libraries, or libraries formed by united efforts and resources of two or more municipalities. Two major areas are covered, establishment and funding. The "Establishment" section outlines steps involved in the process, sample resolutions of municipalities and public library boards, a sample district library agreement, Library of Michigan filing requirements, and other considerations. The "Funding" section describes options for income sources, including districtwide millages, local millages, appropriations, bonding, or combinations thereof. A section on district library boundaries covers adding new participating municipalities and withdrawing from the district. Appendices contain the text of Michigan legislation which governs the process of establishing and financing a district library. (BEW)
