The article talks about the public library trustees appointed by local funding agencies of the library system in the U.S. The funding agencies in Henry County, Georgia are the Board of Commissioners and the Board of Education. Trustees have a library director who has an advanced degree in library science and who has participated in ongoing staff development activities to learn new tricks and trends. They also have fellow board members and a state library agency, which is the Georgia Public Library Service. Important factors to remember about the responsibilities of trustees are mentioned.
