About the Book
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’re considering becoming a public library director, brand new to the role, or you’ve settled in but find yourself thinking “there’s got to be a better way,” authors Hall and Parker are here to help. This resource 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. Hall and Parker have written the book they both wish existed when they started as a library director.
