My complaints go back a long way and things have not changed with the possible exception that duplicate copies are not stored on the tops of the shelving.
COBB LIBRARY SELLS DONATED MATERIALS
Now I would not donate any book to the library, if I want to sell books then I will do it myself. For details on what is wrong with our Cobb County Library take a look at: http://cobbcountylibrary.blogspot.com/.
Overpaid and time to make some cuts!
Cobb County Library Pay/Staffing:
In this economy it is hard to find a job, those who have one and are overpiad for it should have their pay cut and if they feel that they can do better at some other library they should depart and find greener pastures.
In Cobb County the top 4 people are overpaid. There should be pay cuts of 20% at Grade 64 and 59, we don't need a Library Director at $123,322 + benefits! Also we should trim 15% for the 4 at Pay Grade 57.
The library has 320 employee positions, divided between 124 full time positions and 196 part time positions.
The pay grade range from Grade 40 for the 3 Library Couriers and 30 Library Assistant 1’s ($23-$35,817) to Grade 64 (Library Director $75-$123,322). There are 3 Associate Library Manager positions, at pay grade 59 ($59-$95,264) and 4 Regional/Central Library Manager positions at pay grade 57 ($53-$86,091).
