YRL annually holds Trustee Orientation sessions for YRL Board representatives and alternates (see meeting dates for upcoming dates).
Board members are welcome at any time to discuss questions or concerns with Kevin Dodds, YRL Director, in person, by phone (780-962-2003 or 1-877-962-2003, ext. 226) or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The following documents are located on a variety of pages on the YRL website. To make it easier to navigate, we have created links here specifically for the orientation process. All of these documents are available in print, either remotely from your local computer or, upon request, a print package can be sent to you.
The following are links to important YRL and library information:
- Legislation: Grants Regulation, Libraries Act and Regulation, provincial policies, and standards for member libraries
- Library Organizations: Glossary including commonly used acronyms
- Policy and Planning: membership agreement, plan of service, policy and human resources manuals, and collection development guidelines
