Organizational Structure

The members of the Pines & Plains Board of Trustees are responsible for forming policy and approving distribution of funds. The Library Director is responsible for policy compliance, strategic planning and execution, and logistics. Branch Managers supervise the day to day operations, collection development, and facilities at their assigned branch library. Library Service Leads ensure excellent circulation, reference, reader’s advisory, and technology services on the front lines. Library Service Technicians perform technical service and circulation tasks under the supervision of the branch manager and library service lead. Activity Services Guides (formerly known as “Program and Outreach Coordinators”) plan, facilitate, and perform activities both in and out of the library.
