RVUUF library, committee charter

I direct my volunteer efforts toward the support of libraries. In that spirit, I transcribed an official charter for the Library Committee, Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship. (I work for RVUUF as its web content editor and as administrative coordinator for its Religious Explorations program.)

Library Committee
Background
  • The Library Committee is one of the supporting committees desirable to fulfill various functions of the Fellowship (Bylaws 14.1B). The chair is elected by the members of the committee for a period of three years, subject to confirmation by the Board (Bylaws 14.6).

Purpose
  • To maintain the Fellowship library.

Responsibilities
  • Buy, shelve and re-shelve books that explain and support the seven principles of the UUA, broadly including the fourth principle, which is to promote “a free and responsible search for truth and meaning.”
  • Encourage RVUUFians to visit the library and to take advantage of the variety of books offered.
  • Conduct book sales, using donated books, to support the purchase of new books and equipment.

Membership
  • This need not be a large committee. Indeed, the RVUUF library at times has been ably maintained by a single individual.
