If you are filling out this form and indicate library director agreement, you are applying to recruit and work with AmeriCorps members at your library CLLS program.

Please apply for two members only; there may be a chance to engage additional members depending on response. Please let us know what types of members interest you. On this form, you may only choose slots for two members. Full time (FT) members serve a minimum of 1700 hours in a year, half time (HT) members serve a minimum of 900 hours, and quarter time (QT) serve a minimum of 450 hours. You may request a mix of member "types," such as one FT and one QT. You may indicate interest in additional members (more than the two total) in the Comment field.

For each FT member, a library will pay a match of $5,000. For each HT member, a library will pay $2,000. For each QT member, a library will pay $1,000. Libraries will recruit and select members using their own resources. Participating libraries will have to sign an agreement and MOU and work with selected members to successfully complete all member enrollment paperwork before starting the service term. Members must only serve in duties and responsibilities outlined in the grant, and must not displace library employees or do the work of library employees outside of grant-assigned duties.
