6003 Continuing Education for Library Staff Members

The Flathead County Library System Board of Trustees believes that continuing education of staff members is vital to the provision of quality library service. The Board of Trustees therefore declares its commitment to further education for library staff members, who are constantly adapting to meet the changing needs of library users.

Eligibility
All staff members are expected to pursue continuing education. Staff members are encouraged to participate in conferences, workshops, meetings, classes, and professional organizations and may request a schedule change and/or financial assistance to that end.

Responsibilities
It is the responsibility of staff members to work with their supervisors to identify opportunities for continuing education.

It is the responsibility of the director and supervisors to encourage staff members to take advantage of educational opportunities, to determine who shall attend, and to determine if financial assistance will be offered, and to set an example by participating in continuing education and using such education for the benefit of the library.
