(c) Whenever the county superintendent of schools performs school library services for any district, the provisions of Sections 18130 to 18139, inclusive, so far as applicable, shall control. The county superintendent shall employ a librarian holding a valid credential authorizing services as a librarian issued by the State Board of Education or Commission for Teacher Preparation and Licensing. He shall also employ such assistants as may be necessary to carry on this service. The cost of the salaries of such librarian and assistants, and the other necessary expenses of maintenance of the library, including necessary supplies, equipment, and books, may be paid from the county school service fund.

(c) The county superintendent of schools shall have the same powers, duties, responsibilities, and jurisdiction with respect to the furnishing and performance of library services to elementary school districts which have elected to participate in the county school library service as may be exercised by a county library with respect to school library services.
