    Sounds like they have great ideas and an enthusiastic director. I hope that staff is paid to be at outside events like parades and festivals, and not expected to do this on their own time.

      Hi Lin,
      Thanks for your comment. We checked with our contact at Northbrook Public Library and want to reassure you that yes, hourly staff were paid to attend events in compliance with federal laws or granted overtime wages, as applicable. Salaried staff had the flexibility to reduce their hours during the week to make up for time spent on community engagement activities over the weekend.
