Cooperation with other Jurisdictions and Libraries
Policy Regarding Cooperation With Other Jurisdictions and Libraries
- The Board of Trustees and the Director of Libraries shall be alert to opportunities for cooperating with other libraries where such cooperation will bring about a desirable expansion in library service or improvement in the quality of service or both.
- The Library Board may consider and recommend to the governing body contractual arrangements with other libraries, public bodies, or political jurisdictions, keeping in mind that such arrangements must not interfere with the quality and efficiency of the Athens Regional Library System service. The Georgia laws relating to contractual library service shall be observed wherever they apply.
- Reciprocal borrowing arrangements with other libraries are encouraged.
