Updated MN Trustee Handbook

Just Announced — State Library Services has updated the Minnesota Public Library Trustee Handbook!

This revised edition includes updated content from the prior handbook as well as the Library Trustee Manual template published by the Chief Officers of State Library Agencies (COSLA) in 2016. The handbook is meant to be a useful resource for library trustees. It informs trustees about Minnesota’s public library environment and governance structures. It also helps trustees understand their roles and responsibilities as library stewards. Its purpose is to give trustees and those working with library boards a broad view of their duties and responsibilities.

Please share the handbook with your library trustees. You may also access it from the State Library Services homepage.
