Sno-Isle Libraries Board Policy

Purpose

To set the conditions under which Sno-Isle Libraries (Library District) assumes ownership of a library facility.

Scope

The Library District endeavors to own library facilities when the Library District’s ability to provide library service is best served by owning the facility.

Decisions regarding library facility ownership are governed by the Sno-Isle Libraries Board of Trustees (Board) and compliant with all applicable Federal, State, and local laws, rules, regulations, and ordinances. The Library District shall not acquire any interest in facility ownership unless authorized by a majority vote of the Board.

All Library District facility acquisitions and transfers must comply with the requirements in the Board’s Site Selection and Acquisition Policy to the extent not superseded by this policy.

The Executive Director is responsible for carrying out the directives of the Board regarding library facility ownership. All contracts must be executed in the name of Sno-Isle Intercounty Rural Library District and all agreements handled in accordance with the Library District’s purchasing policies and procedures.

The Board may delegate to the Executive Director its authority to enter into and execute agreements, instruments of conveyance and all other related documents pertaining to library facility ownership. If the Executive Director is unavailable, unable, or unwilling to carry out this responsibility, the Board has the authority to act in this capacity or may delegate it to the Deputy Director or a Department Director.

Implementation

The Library District may assume ownership of a community library facility only when the Library District deems the facility to be in acceptable condition, the property is transferred without restriction, and only in those communities meeting one of the following conditions:

  • They are annexed to the Library District.
  • They are at a full levy rate contract with the Library District.
  • They are located in an unincorporated community.

The Library District may assume ownership of library facilities previously owned by cities, towns, or other groups wishing to transfer ownership.

Building construction, renovation, maintenance, and repair expenses may be funded in a variety and / or combination of ways. Funding methods include but are not limited to: Library Capital Facility Area bonds, non-voter approved bonds, grants, capital partnerships, the annual Library District operating budget, and established building reserves.

Associated Policies and Laws

Process

This policy is reviewed every four (4) years by the Executive Director (or designee), who makes recommendations to the appropriate Board committee. The committee reviews the recommendations, revises the policy as necessary and appropriate, endorses, and advances the policy to the full Board for approval.

Date approved: April 29, 2024
