§ 135.8. Phase II, service in the interest of the Commonwealth.

 (a)  Within six months of receiving a master’s degree in library service and of being dropped from the State Library payroll as a library trainee, the library trainee shall commence to fulfill his contractual obligation to the Commonwealth by performing full-time library duties in an approved Commonwealth library for a period twice the length of time the library trainee is on the State Library payroll as a library trainee, but not to exceed two years, except as follows:

   (1)  Any library trainee who has graduated from a graduate library school and has accepted employment in an approved Commonwealth library but who cannot continue such employment because of sickness, pregnancy, accident, military duty, or because of any reason beyond his control, may upon approval of the State Librarian postpone fulfilling such contractual obligation and shall be continued on an inactive basis. At a later time such library trainee may resume employment and satisfy any remaining obligation, provided such obligation is fully satisfied within no more than two years from being reinstated on an active basis.

   (2)  In such cases the State Librarian shall decide the length of time such person is to be continued on an inactive basis, and such time shall not be counted for purposes of computing the duration of services required to be performed by the library trainee.

 (b)  If the library trainee fails to meet the obligation specified in subsection (a) and to fulfill the terms of his contract with the Commonwealth he shall be subject to the penalties described in §  135.9 (relating to penalties).
