Libraries are foundational to democratic self governance and a free society. Oversight of the Pierce County Library System (PCLS) is a privilege and a public trust which carries with it certain responsibilities. Board members must demonstrate individually and collectively the highest standards of honor and integrity to maintain citizens’ trust in the Library as an institution of self governance. Conduct which contravenes that public trust is grounds for recommending to the Pierce County Council removal from the Board of Trustees.
The purpose of this policy is to set forth minimum standards of ethical conduct and responsibilities not enumerated in the PCLS By-laws or in other Board policies.
Adopted by the Pierce County Rural Library District Board of Trustees, February 11, 2015.
