Virginia Public Library Trustee Handbook. Revised Edition, 1999.
Patton, Ida R.
This revised edition reflects the changes that have taken place in the commonwealth's community of public libraries since the "Handbook" was published in 1991. This handbook is designed to give boards of trustees' basic information on the structure of library service in Virginia, with emphasis on their major areas of responsibility. Although it is written primarily for governing boards, advisory boards, Friends of the Library, elected officials, and library staffs may find it useful as well. Sections include: Library Boards in Virginia; Becoming a Trustee; Board Organization; Policy Making; Personnel; Finances; Legal Responsibilities of Advisory Boards; Legal Responsibilities of Governing Boards; Library Planning; Trustees and the Political Process; Public Relations; Friends of the Library; Volunteers; The Library of Virginia; Organizations; Glossary of Library Terms and Acronyms; and Recommended Reading for Trustees. An appendix contains 35 items: reproductions from relevant documents and other specific information for reference. (AEF)
