Outsourcing, Volunteers, and LMMC
Link to January 20 The Union article, "Library panel rejects management outsourcing".
Excerpt: A second committee charged with recommending changes for Nevada County's financially-challenged libraries voted against outsourcing management Wednesday. The Library Management Model Committee made up of elected officials from the county's cities and community members recommended two plans to the Board of Supervisors that would cut staff hours, but keep all six libraries open and save the literacy program. The Doris Foley Historical Library would be run by the western county's Friends of the Library in both options as well.
