Since the publication of its first edition in 1965, this book has been a gold-standard resource for setting up and managing cutting-edge small public library facilities. Completely revised and updated, this new edition continues that tradition with many more figures, case studies and sample policies, and new content on grant writing, program budgeting, hiring, and creative compensation.

Review: Administration Of The Small Public Library

User Review  - Jen - Goodreads

This isn't supposed to be stimulating reading, but it's a fair overview of the management side of public libraries. Probably best for a class, or for a new manager, like me. Read full review
