There are a number of laws and regulations that directly and indirectly apply to and impact libraries in New York State. This program provides a primer on what trustees need to know about how libraries are governed in NYS including an overview of minimum standards for public and association libraries. All MHLS member libraries are required to meet these standards, which include requirements for library planning, staff training, library services, and community engagement.
- Library stakeholders will understand the minimum standards applicable to their library.
- Library stakeholders will be aware of ways to meet the minimum standards.
- Library stakeholders will be aware of resources to support them if they are not currently meeting standards.
