This project was undertaken to develop a library policy manual for the Selah School District libraries. Topics were collected from a variety of venues, manuals on the Internet,the.librarian list serv LM-NET, American.LibraryAssociation and the Washington Library Media Association. Lists generated from these sources were then narrowed down to the important management and operations topics. It was determined that substitutes in the library would need the information to manage the library, utilize the checkout system and enforce library policies, therefore those sections are in the front of the manual. Those policies that are part of the Selah School District Board Policies and directly related to the management of a library were included next, to assist the librarians with patron requests and to generate reports for school administrators. Discussions on LM_NET point to a policy manual as important; but few public school libraries have a current one in place. It will be up to the Librarian's of Selah School District to decide if the document is useful and should be maintained.
