5.4 Annual Number of Visits to the Library’s Website: If you contract with a web-hosting service, check with the vendor to see if it can provide you with the number of annual visitors.

If you cannot get a number from your web hosting service, double your in-person visitor counts (3.51) and use that for web visits, and add a Note explaining why more accurate counts are not available.

5.5 No (unless you've done so on your own).

Answer Y if you subscribe to RCLS IT Services.  Answer N, If you are an IT Independent library.

6.1 The number of hours per week that equals full time employment.  This number can only change by Board action, i.e.: 35 hours.

  • To calculate Full Time Equivalents (FTE), take the total weekly hours for each employee and divide the total by the above amount, i.e.: a part timer works 10 hours a week, so 10/35 = .29 FT.

Warning - 6.4,  6.5,  6.6  &  6.7 are in a different order than on the 2022 Annual Report.  The descriptions have also been slightly tweaked. 

The same is true for 6.14,  6.15,  6.16,  6.17,  6.18,  6.19, they are in a different order than on the 2022 Annual Report.
