Library Operational Policies

Now that the library is closed to the public, you may have additional time to dust off the library’s policies and make sure they are up to date! Join MLA and Attorney Anne Seurynck from Foster, Swift, Collins, & Smith PC for a live webinar, Wednesday, April 15 from 1:00 - 2:00pm on library operational policies. Library policies are the cornerstone of library operations and provide an important tool for staff to deal with library patrons. We will discuss the most important library operational policies such as Patron Behavior Policy, Internet Use Policies, Freedom of Information Act Policies and Meeting Room Policies. We will be discussing the need for record retention and media policies. We will also discuss emergency preparedness in light of the most recent COVID-19 issues faced by libraries.
