The Library Board and its Duties

The library board needs to meet soon after its initial appointment. During this meeting the board and director need to discuss what needs to be accomplished in the first year. The board will also need to elect officers at this meeting. Over the next few meetings it will be important to review the Trustee Handbook put together by the State Library and review laws with which the board will need to comply. The board will have some duties assigned to it during the transition process, but needs to remember that one of the most important duties it has is to support the director and staff through the transition phase.
