Personnel

From the Handbook for Library Trustees

  • The management and operation of a library are accomplished through a partnership among trustees, the library director, staff and volunteers.
  • As the library's governing body (and the entity with ultimate accountability for the institution), the board of trustees has the responsibility to hire a competent, professional and responsible library director and then to review and evaluate that person's performance regularly. Having hired a director, the board has an obligation to support the director wholeheartedly within the context of the employment relationship. read more
