Trustee Training

The South Dakota State Library has purchased a statewide membership with United for Libraries for all South Dakota public libraries. Your group membership includes access to many programs and databases that will assist you and your trustees. This will be another great way for you to assist your trustees on working on their voluntary accreditation hours.

Download the flyer below with your trustees so they can login at home or share the website at a library board meeting. Remember to remind them to keep records or if they offer a course completion certification they can print or email it to you, the director. Just keep track for your records.

Some topics in the series explain the basics of being a good trustee. The titles include:

  • Short Takes for Trustees
  • Trustee Academy
  • Plus now available to us more resources:
    • Engaging Today's Volunteers for Libraries and Friends
    • Merging Your Library's Friends Group & Foundation, With Friends Like These, and Troubled Library Boards.
