Example CE grant calculation for attending the Summer Library Program

In this example, the librarian is bringing the person who helps with the Summer Library Program.

Travel time from Library Town to Salina according to Mapquest = 1.5 hours
Workshop time is from 9 am to 3 pm = 6 hours
Travel time from Salina to Library Town according to Mapquest = 1.5 hours
Total travel and workshop time = 9 hours
(We do not care whether the mileage estimates come from a Web site or your odometer.)

The day of the workshop library is open from 1 to 5 = 4 hours
Library pays:

  • Librarian's salary for the four hours the library is open even though the librarian is at the workshop.

The CE grant pays:

  • Librarian's salary for 5 hours when the library is not open (9 hours - 4 hours the library was open = 5 hours)
  • If the other person attending the workshop is not a volunteer, then that person gets paid for 9 hours.
  • If the person running the library from 1-5 pm is also not a volunteer, then the grant pays the salary of that person for those 4 hours.
  • Round trip mileage for one car between Your Town and Salina (195 miles) at IRS rate ($.51) = $99.45
  • Lunch for two people = $12
  • Kansas library laws brings together Kansas library laws and Attorney General's opinions in one resource.
  • CKLS CE projects is the website for CKLS previous continuing education program. This website remains of value in providing online resources for work librarians still need to do.
