Join co-authors of the Handbook for Library Trustees of New York State Jerry Nichols and Rebekkah Smith Aldrich for this fun and informative series! Each month trustees are encouraged to read a chapter of the Trustee Handbook and send in questions that the authors will address.
Before the event:
1. Please read the Planning and Evaluation chapter before this session.
2. Thoughts to consider before the program:
Is the library’s current long-range plan based on feedback received from the community?
Are the goals and objectives of the plan designed to meet the needs expressed by the community?
Are budget decisions based on goals expressed in the board-approved long-range plan?
Does the library have an operational plan to address gaps in resources necessary to be successful in achieving the goals set in the long-range plan?
Does the board annually evaluate the goals in the plan and adjust them accordingly?
