Forming a District Group - The Role of Local Government Officials and the New Board

We need to discuss the role of local government in forming a district as well as the importance of creating a formal group/committee that will lead the district effort. Your local government officials both city and county play an important role in forming a district. They also happen to be a critical part of many of the special issues we are going to talk about later on in this handbook. So what is the role of local government? And what about the new board of trustees? In some ways it's awkward to create a library district because what happens in a new district really depends on its first board of trustees. It usually works out, but be aware of this weird dichotomy where the current board and some loyal volunteers have to make some preliminary decisions that might be carried out by a different group of individuals - the first library district board
