Alabama Public Library Service Trustee Handbook is intended to answer most questions board and library staff members might have about the role of trustees in the public library. The handbook is designed in such a way that readers can quickly identify and read what is of interest to them. Readers may also download and print the handbook in its entirety. Trustees with questions not answered in the handbook should contact the APLS consultant assigned to their library using the map and contact information contained in the "Front Matter" section below. Please note that the handbook was prepared as an educational resource and should not replace competent legal advice.
