Library Council
When a library joins the ACP, the library director will immediately occupy a seat on the Library Council. 

The Library Council is a working committee that oversees administrative issues, collection development, and identifies needs for professional development within the library.  In addition, the Library Council will elect a representative to serve on the Management Council, a standing committee of the Board of Directors which functions in a consultative role to the ACP leadership.  The Library Council may also decide to form smaller working committees to assist with member library services.
