Our library policies have several functions in today’s complex organizations. Their statement help define the values of the library, and they help managers and staff translate those values into service priorities. Policies establish a standard for services that can be understood by users of the service and library staff. Policies ensure equitable treatment for all, and polices provide a framework for delivery of services. All policies have been adopted by a library’s governing agents in a formal process and are consistent with local, state, and federal laws. As a part of the strategic plan, policies are reviewed on a consistent basis.
