Library System
Department Functions

The System, a department of the County, provides library service to the residents of Levy County.

There is a headquarters housing the Library Director, an Administrative Assistant and a Youth Services Coordinator.

The Library Director and the Administrative Assistant provide administrative support for the five branches. The Youth Services Coordinator provides programming for children and youth ages birth to 18 at all five library branches.

The administrative support consists of centrally ordering books and other library materials, library and office supplies, equipment, services (telecommunications, printing, book lease, copier maintenance, computer maintenance, etc.). The Library Director coordinates branch activities, represents the System to the County Commission, to other County departments and to the public. The Library Director plans the System's development, works with State Library representatives and other library directors to improve the System's programs and activities. She and the Administrative Assistant work with vendors to obtain the library materials, supplies, equipment, services, etc. required for the System's efficient operation. A central automation system is operated from the headquarters to provide a catalog of library materials and circulation services.

The five branches of the Levy County Public Library System each serve a unique community. The library staff at each branch is responsible for the day to day activities of the library; collection development, circulation and maintenance; seasonal displays; and supervision of volunteers. They work closely with each branch’s Friends of the Library group to provide programming and other benefits to the library. Four of the library buildings are owned and maintained by the municipalities in which they are located while the fifth one is owned and maintained by a Woman's Club.
