Trustees play an integral role in public libraries and the OLC is committed to providing information and resources to help trustees effectively execute their roles and responsibilities. Registration is now open for the Library Trustee Workshop, which will be held Sat., March 7 (9:30 a.m.-4:15 p.m), at the Quest Conference Center in Columbus.
This workshop will focus on the basics that every library trustee needs to know, including how to be an effective board member, legal issues impacting libraries, how libraries are funded in Ohio, how to work with the library director and staff, and much more. Attendees will also learn about services that the OLC offers to its member libraries and their trustees. In addition, all participants will receive a free copy of the Ohio Public Library Trustees’ Handbook.
