[cid:image002.jpg at 01D51789.F4D58510]From the publisher: New public library directors quickly learn what seasoned directors already know: running a library means you've always got your hands full-balancing the needs of staff, patrons, facilities, library boards, and other stakeholders with professional responsibilities like community interactions, legal and financial requirements, and whole lot else that wasn't exactly in the job description.

Whether you are considering becoming a public library director, are brand new to the role, or have settled in but find yourself thinking "there's got to be a better way," authors Hall and Parker are here to help. This book walks you through the core components of getting up to speed and then provides templates, sample documents, checklists, and other resources that will make your job easier. Gleaned from their own decades of experience in library leadership positions, in this toolkit they:

*         cover such key topics as employees, trustees, finances, legal issues, library policies, emergency planning, and technology;
*         discuss strategic planning and share advice on keeping up with trends;
*         offer nearly two dozen ready-to-use resources, including a Director's Report Template, a Social Media Policy, an Employee Exit Questionnaire, a Library Cleaning Checklist, a Vision Statement worksheet, and more; and
*         suggest additional learning opportunities in each chapter to help you continue your learning journey.

Public library directors can steer clear of common pain points by relying on the expert guidance and organizational aids in this toolkit.
