Welcome to Shortgrass Library System

Library Managers' Handbook


This handbook is intended for use by managers and staff working in Shortgrass Library System (SLS) member libraries. It is meant to provide an overview of services and resources provided to member libraries by Shortgrass, as well as a guide to common duties and procedures that library managers are expected to perform. We encourage all library managers to make use of this handbook -- the information contained here is valuable to everyone. It is also intended as a living document, and suggestions for changes and additions will always be welcomed.

Each section of the handbook discusses a different topic or procedure. All sections have been uploaded as individual PDFs, so users are able to review, download, and print materials with ease. Click on each section below to view.
