One of the most important roles of a district library center is to encourage the development of strong libraries. Strong libraries are built on a foundation of effective governance from an engaged board of trustees.
The district library center offers a consultant available to assist your team in all areas of trustee and board development with resources from the professional collection, up to date information about PA libraries and nationwide trends, and the time and tools to work with your board team.
Whether it’s a weeknight training session, a brown bag lunch time lecture, or a Saturday morning working retreat, ask what your board could or should do to bring your library closer to its mission and vision today.
Use the Getting on Board resources from the Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
