Synopsis

In the author's view, the secret to a successful public library is a strong library board-librarian partnership that celebrates the contribution of each partner while respecting the boundaries within which each must operate. A library trustee for over 16 years and Past President of the Canadian Library Trustees Association, Lorraine Williams shares her wealth of experience and knowledge of human behavior as she explores_in a frank, no-punches pulled style_the relationship between board and library director, the distinction between policy making and policy administration, the pitfalls when the lines get blurred, and the exciting results when the partners work together.

Lorraine Williams (BA, University of Toronto; MSW, University of Ottawa), formerly a member of the North York Public Library Board, is Vice-Chair of the Metropolitan Toronto Library Board. Her human relations skills (as group therapist and marital/individual counselor) combine well with her down-to-earth writing style (as author of numerous articles and books) and extensive experience as Past President of both the Ontario and the Canadian Library Trustees Association, and member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Library Association.
