A policy and procedure manual for all members (new and current) of the church or synagogue library staff is valuable because it preserves continuity in library administration, gives an easy reference to policies and procedures, helps maintain efficiency and effectiveness, provides a first step in establishing a new library, and provides a guide for library helpers and committee members. The purpose of this guide is to suggest information to be included in such a manual. Information on the following is provided: mission statement; goals and objectives; organizational chart; history; personnel; staff selection policy; financial policies; facilities; furnishings and equipment; selection policies; processing materials; sources of materials, equipment, furnishings and supplies; circulation policies; library public relations and promotions; inventory-weeding-maintenance procedures; reports; long-range planning; and professional memberships.
