Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
The Georgetown Library is staffed by 1.675 FTE (three employees) and is open five days per week. The individual responsible for day-to-day management responsibilities of the library and Community Hub 4 is a Senior Library Assistant. Responsibilities include scheduling staff and programs, marketing and promotion, representing the library to the public, and dealing with emergency situations. Supervision of the staff and operation is provided by the Library Director at a distance. In order to provide appropriate supervision of the library, it is recommended that the library be staffed by a Supervising Library Assistant position. It should be noted that there are internal candidates in the Library who will likely be interested in this position. If one of those candidates is selected, staff will return to the Board at a later date to delete an existing Library position, thereby reducing the net fiscal impact.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could opt to not approve the recommended action, or may provide alternate direction to staff.
