Pierce County Library System seeks and encourages partnership with non-profit organizations, governments, commercial entities, and other groups, to support and enrich our community.
A partnership is defined as a collaboration that results in an exchange of services, use of facilities, a newly-created service or event, or other transactions between the Library System and another entity. While the Library and the other entity may not have identical goals, their goals should be complementary and not contradictory. Each partner contributes to the enterprise.
The purpose of such partnerships is to create new opportunities to improve life in our community, opportunities that further the missions of the Library and its partner(s). The Library will seek and respond to opportunities to partner with organizations to reach new audiences and cross promote library services and offerings. A successful partnership will build on the strength of each partner, and reach new or shared constituencies that neither partner, working alone, could serve as well.
Certain guidelines apply in deciding the specific nature and conditions of acceptable partnerships. They are:
