Library for the Blind Mobile Library Services Q:\Administrative - Management\ACLA, LAC, Region & District\ACLA\STPL_ACLA_CLP\STPL_ACLA_CLP.pptx Good @ All Libraries! 63 Libraries!!! Jefferson Hills Public Library A Highlevel View of the ACLA System ACLA, a federated library system, pursues, provides and promotes the highest quality public library service possible for all residents of Allegheny County through collaboration, cooperation and coordination. ACLA: Board: 9 Members. Glossary of terms & things to know: Responsible for all matters relating to the System. (Decision that impact the Suburban Libraries.) Central Unit: Executive Director & ACLA Staff Book Mobile: Primarily Funded by Grant Money. ACLA-CU monitors this money. STATE & RAD Funding: Is a pass through designate for this money. Some money is withheld for ACLA-CU operations. ACLA: Allegheny County Library Association. ACLA has three different meanings: Central Unit, or Suburban Libraries or Suburban + City libraries (CLP). CLP: Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (City libraries) eiN: eiNetwork [Electronic Information Network] ACLA General Membership Suburban + CLP Libraries (Meet Apx. 4 xs a yr.) = 1 Suburban Library = 1 City Library CLP (City) 18 Libraries ACLA (Suburban) 45 Libraries East Region CLP is an ACLA Consolidate Library group CLP has 1 vote. The 17 branches libraries do not vote. (CLP Usually Abstains at the membership level since these votes are usually about funding issues relevant only to the suburban libraries.) Top down decision making. There is an over all Executive Director that reports to a board. There are Directors and Managers who report to the Ex. Dir. They are responsible for various operating units and the branch libraries. There is one Boards which set their own strategic plans. District Library Service Center: CLP is designated by the State to monitor this. This is ILL and Shipping services. Library for the Blind & Physically Handicapped: CLP Monitors this money.

Receives input from the members but makes unilateral decisions. ACLA Federated Libraries: Each Member has 1 Vote Bottom up decision making. Most Member libraries have a director that reports to a board. The Boards (AKA Trustees) set their own strategic plans. Where does the money come from STATE, COUNTY (RAD), LOCAL, OTHER (#s from 2010) STATE We pay taxes. The PA Department of Education gets a portion. That department assigns some of that to the libraries & library systems through out the state. (State Funding used to be based on a formula, but that has been suspended since 2003.) Some of those funds go to ACLA-CU. We, as a part of ACLA get a portion. Some go directly to CLP, District Services & County Coordinated Aid. (Note: Scotts portion in 2010 was: $27,040.) COUNTY (RAD) The mission of RAD (Regional Asset District) is to support and finance regional assets in the areas of libraries, parks & recreation, cultural, sports and civic facilities & programs. The District receives 1/2 of the proceeds from the 1% Allegheny County Sales and Use Tax. (5/3/10: http://www.radworkshere.org/interior.php?pageID=10) $1 ONE $1 $.07 tax of the 1% go to RAD fund assets. These assets include ALL libraries. There is a difference between the RAD distribution of $s to City & Suburban libraries . In other words: When you pay $1 for an item you are charged $.07 in taxes. One percent or .0007 of the 7 cents goes to RAD. The RAD then funds community assets . ACLA (Suburban) 1% RAD Funding 76% of the population RAD 2010 funding: 45 ACLA Libraries = $5,600,000 or 1%. ACLA ( 45 County Libraries and YES Scott is one!) ACLA-CU distributes funds to its 45 member libraries based on a formula. (Note: Scotts portion in 2010 was: $71,677 or .012%) LOCAL Local communities are expected to contribute a minimum of $5 per capita to remain in good standing with the State. Some communities have laws which require a % go to their library. Scott Township Public Library is fortunate to be in one of those communities. (Note: Townships allocation in 2010 was $97,500. In 2010 the Township also initiated a $5,000 challenge grant. They would match dollar-to-dollar up to $5,000 all unrestricted donations we raised.) According to the RAD website in 2010: Libraries (CLP & ACLA) receive the largest portion of the allocation at 31%. 30% RAD Funding 24% of the population CLP (City) RAD 2010 funding: 18 City Libraries = $17,600,000 or 30%. CLP (18 Pittsburgh City Libraries and NO Scott is NOT one) OTHER STPL receives income from the other following sources: Friends of the Library: $8,000 (NOT all Libraries have a FOL. Another thing for us to be thankful for!) Extended Use & Service Fees: $12,480 Restricted & Unrestricted Donations: $10,573 (Includes our $5,000 toward the Challenge Grant from the Township.)
