The Director/Administrator is in charge of day-to-day operations of the Central Kansas Library System. To accomplish the division of labor, the Library System is organized into eight departments: Administration; Reference/Outreach; Continuing Education; Youth Services; Talking Books for the Blind and Physically Handicapped; Automation Services; Resource Access and Sharing; and Maintenance. Each department head supervises support staff and various programs, including Books-by-Mail, Rotating Books, Interlibrary Loan, Technical Services, and the Low-Vision Center. The Director/Administrator is responsible for all hiring and firing decisions and recommends salary increases to the Board annually.
The Administrative Manager directs human resources—responsible for maintaining personnel records, timecards, payroll, vacation records, sick leave records, other time off records, and all personnel insurance records. Staff members may contact the Administrative Manager about any of these issues.
