The Job of a Trustee
Page last modified date: 11/28/2012
As a trustee, you are entrusted by the public to look after its interest. You are also accountable to the public. Trusteeship is a working relationship with the community, library staff and fellow trustees. It requires a great deal of time, and even more importantly, a commitment to libraries. There is a direct correlation between the quality of library service a community offers and the knowledge, capability and enthusiasm of its Board members.
