At the recent Directors Institute, NEKLS public library directors were asked to complete a survey about the benefits their libraries offer staff members. Here we present the results of that survey, along with the results of the most recent Salary Survey that the state library conducts annually.

NEKLS staff hopes that having this information will allow directors to compare their libraries’ pay and benefits with peer institutions in the region.

Many thanks to the Accreditation Committee, who brought forth this idea during one of their meetings to discuss the standards for 2018-2020. Members included:

· Adrienne Olejnik, Rossville

· Alice Smith, Carbondale

· Brad Allen, Lawrence

· Jacque Slingsby, Atchison

· Kate Haynie, Seneca

· Maggie McKeithan, Doniphan County

· Matt Nonojen, Leavenworth

· Rachael Hissong, Oskaloosa

· Terry Chartier, Ottawa
