Trustee Training

Individualized workshops

Training sessions that are tailored to the specific needs of the library Board are held at the member library on a day and at a time that is convenient to the Board members. Contact UHLS for further information.


UHLS supports and encourages trustee participation in the programs offered by partner agencies such as the New York State Association of Library Boards (NYSALB) and the Association for Library Trustees and Advocates (ALTA).
