GPLS Position on allocation of State Paid Positions

Per Sharon Rowe's request. This document is designed to be used as a discussion guide to educate board members (and new library directors) to the different ways that the salaries grant are used from system to system. While GPLS doesn't advocate for a centralized or a decentralized approach, there are certainly advantages to the economies of scale when using a centralized administrative staffing approach. This does place a larger burden on local agencies to fund county-only positions. Most systems have to live with what they've inherited and try to make the most of that.
