What is the proper relationship between librarian and library board?
What is the source of library funding?
What is the budget cycle?
What are the eligibility requirements for receiving the System grant?
If boards have seven members, why is a quorum now five?
What is an executive session?

If someone asks to see board documents, how soon must you supply them?
