Board Policies

Policies are items that have been passed by the Library Board (see Library Governance) and are the rules by which the Library functions.  They cannot be changed or amended without the Library Board's assent.

Procedures outline the recommended and usual ways in which business is conducted.  They interpret policy and are directed by Library Management Staff.
