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.
