The Teton County Library Board has approved the creation of a new position to manage information technology needs, bringing that work back under the library roof after outsourcing much of it to Teton County’s IT team in recent years.
At a meeting Thursday, the board voted to hire an information technology administrator. Once filled, the position will be the only one with the title of “administrator” in the library’s organizational chart, and it’s unclear how it will fit in.
The library is between directors, after Dawn Jenkin left within a year of her hire, and the new administrator’s place in the hierarchy will be left to the discretion of the incoming director.
Sid Stanfill — who served as interim director between the departure of former library Director Valerie Maginnis and the arrival of Jenkins — is again filling that role.
