The information here is to help library Boards and trustees become more knowledgeable in understanding what their role is and more competent, confident, and effective in exercising their responsibilities. While many of the trustee learning resources cited below come from other organizations, they are based on successful practices that are transferable across jurisdictions.
To assist you in growing as a trustee or a Board, the MLTA has published a handbook that is an excellent resource for many aspects of library Board work. As an organization, MLTA would like to help our members in any way that it can. If you or your Board would like to correspond or meet personally with us, please contact us.
