MAJOR DUTIES/RESPONSIBILITIES: (Trustee Job Description from the 1996 edition of the Georgia Public Library Trustees Handbook)

  • The issues and decisions involved in the administration of the modern public library are varied and complex. Trusteeship is not only an honorary position; it is also a working relationship with the community, library staff, and fellow trustees.
  • Trustees must devote a great deal of time and express a high level of interest to fulfill their duties. Commitment is the primary qualification for those who serve on the board.
  • Effective boards consist of informed, dedicated citizens who represent a cross-section of the community. There is a direct correlation between the quality of library service a community is provided and the knowledge, capability, and enthusiasm of its board members.
