We are engagers: turning and focusing outward toward our community. We are learners: listening to what our community tells us and acting purposefully to achieve our objectives. We are stewards: defending our shared values, using vital resources responsibly, and working collaboratively with our partners to prepare for the future.
Providing leadership for library-wide initiatives and operations, Administration develops and manages the budget; provides accounts payable and financial reporting services; works closely with the library's elected Board of Trustees; manages external communication; oversees and schedules meeting rooms; and supports all library departments and staff.
