Library staff collaborates with community organizations. Staff is encouraged to become active in and embedded in communities. When it is in the best interest of the Library to belong to a designated community organization, the Library will pay some expenses for a Library representative to actively participate in that organization.
Pierce County Library System seeks to have staff actively involved with community organizations in the Library’s service area. Staff participation in community organizations is intended to achieve the following goals:
Strategic Organizations: Organizations identified by the Library as important connections to position the Library or library staff as a community leader and result in effective collaborations.
When joining a strategic organization is assigned to or required of the position and with prior approval from the Executive Director, the Library will support community involvement by reimbursing staff for some costs.
