In Idaho, public library boards are not advisory boards.  They are governing boards.  A governing board of trustees sets library policy; sets and oversees the library’s budget; hires, supervises, evaluates, and works as a team with the library’s director; and makes sure that its community is well represented and informed regarding their local library and public libraries in general.

Your ICfL area field consultant supports each public library trustee and director with consulting services, information, and tools necessary to help fulfill the responsibilities of the office.
