Trustee Handbook Book Club – 2024 Dates!

The Trustee Handbook Book Club will continue in 2024! Thank you to all who attended the Trustee Handbook Book Club sessions last year. We hope to see you this year for the continuation of this one-of-a-kind series. 

Join Rebekkah Smith Aldrich, co-author of the Handbook for Library Trustees of New York State, and friends for this fun and informative series! At each session, trustees will take a deeper dive into a topic relevant to their role and responsibilities as a library trustee. Each month trustees are encouraged to read a chapter of the Trustee Handbook. Each session will include a brief introduction to the chapter topic, as well as address any questions that come in live during the event.
