This workshop will introduce Trustees to the Library Act; to Trustee roles and responsibilities; to community advocacy; to current issues, as well as many other interesting aspects of publicly funded library services. This session promises to be informative, fun and highly beneficial under the expert facilitation of Dr. Ken Haycock, an internationally recognized consultant."
