Trustee Development

We recognize that trustees play a crucial role in the ongoing success of our member libraries.  We offer training and consultation  to help member library boards make the best decisions for their libraries and communities.

OCPL develops both on-site trustee training for individual member library boards and system-wide trustee development workshops throughout the year. 

For more information about trustee development or to schedule a consultation, contact OCPL Administration. 

Updated resources are avaliable on our Google Drive.
