How to Use This Manual

This handbook is designed to walk you through the process of transitioning to an independent library district. Each chapter covers a major area of the transition and includes a checklist that can be used to accomplish individual tasks. You may wish to turn the checklist items into an action plan. This will help you identify what needs to be accomplished, who is responsible for individual items, and when these items need to be accomplished.
