Evaluation Projects
#55
Project Description:
Standards for staffing levels at all 10 public libraries in the Piedmont Region.
Question/Problem Statement:
What is the question that needs to be answered or the problem that needs be solved?
Library staff members are the most important resource we have. We need to attract them, keep them, and motivate them to develop professionally.
If staffing levels are too low, staff members can burn out…they have to always be “on” without off –desk time for professional development. A busy staff person is a happy staff person. So there is a balance between too much to do and not enough.
Statement of Why:
Why does the library need this answer/solution? What will the library be able to do after it has this answer/solution?
We have libraries in the region that are staffed by their primary funding agencies. In six of our libraries, that funding agency is the city. City staff may run a city well, but they do not know the balance needed to have a busy, productive library staff without burnout. They do not take into account all of the “hidden” tasks and responsibilities of a public library worker. Great article…https://www.bustle.com/p/7-surprising-th...ks-9704556We will be able to give data to funding sources regarding the suggested number of staff hours per open hour. We’ll be able to keep staff members engaged, and avoid burnout.
