Review:

Praise for the author's model policies for small and medium public libraries (1998): "A good starting place for any library needing to develop operations policies." --Booklist

Praise for the author's model policies for small and medium public libraries (1998): "Directors of small and medium public libraries...will welcome this volume. Highly recommended." --Library Journal

"If your small or medium-sized library is just beginning to create policies, you need this book! While geared toward smaller institutions, larger libraries may also find it helpful for revising current policies...The included policies provide a framework for libraries that may be new to writing policies; but what makes this an excellent resource are the supplementary resources and questions designed to help you tailor each policy to your library." --Public Libraries

From Booklist:

The guidebook is written mainly for small to medium-sized public library directors who need to analyze current policies, revise or update those still in use, and develop new ones. The book is organized by administrative and service areas such as employment practices, staff and patron conduct, use of materials, collection development, and access to facilities. A quick guide to model policies enables the reader to find examples that can be used or adapted. Also here are various documents, such as the ALA Code of Ethics and the Library Bill of Rights. The authors’ experience as consultants and teachers translates into philosophical and pragmatic explanations and examples. Because policy matters affect the daily operations of a library, this practical tool should be useful to administrators, staff, and library boards. --Patricia Hogan
