NHLTA WEBINAR AVAILABLE
 
"The Other Money" 
presented by Terry Knowles
 
Navigating the different sources of money received by a public library can be confusing. In this webinar you will learn how to legally accept, administer, and expend all private and non-tax categories of money given to your library, and how those funds relate to the annual budgeting process. Links to WEBINAR and to PDF of PowerPoint slides.
 
Terry Knowles is the Assistant Director of Charitable Trusts, NH Attorney General’s Office, and is the recognized expert on libraries and funding issues.  

 

Trust and Libraries

People tend to trust libraries as shown by the multiple studies done by Pew Research, the Maine State Library, and the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) that confirm the trusted status of librarians.
