History
The Collegedale Public Library re-opened under the ownership and operation of our City in August 2011.  The branch was previously operated as a joint venture between the City of Chattanooga and Hamilton County Government.  Library Systems and Services Incorporated, LSSI, was the vendor awarded a multi-year contract to operate our Public Library.

Staff
The building, contents and collection are owned by the City and the staff are employed by Library Systems and Services Incorporated.  The library director serves as a subject matter expert to the city manager while taking direction from LSSI as well, who is her employer according to contract.  Our library receives rave reviews and is part of the very fiber of our community. The city of Collegedale and our community invest heavily in our Public Library, a model we can be very proud of and which is very successful.

Friends of the Library
The Friends of the Collegedale Public Library is a nonprofit organization designed to support the library in a number of ways, including providing financial assistance and special programs and events. The group is seeking members to help carry out its goals and objectives, and volunteer service opportunities are available.
