Book Review: Twenty-Five Cases in Executive-Trustee Relationships in Public Libraries, 54 Law Library Journal 75 (1961)
This is the second volume in the series,
the first of which was reviewed in this
Journal in February 1960 by this reviewer.
The original volume was received with
praise and with anticipation of future
volumes. The current volume has most assuredly
lived up to expectations.
While the cases in this volume deal
with public library situations involving
governing bodies, law librarians will find
much that is applicable to their own circumstances.
Personnel problems of hiring
and firing as well as problems of book selection
and censorship which are some of
the matters discussed in these cases are
basic to any type of library.
