What is involved in being a library trustee?

The library Board of Trustees is composed of seven residents of the Library district who are registered voters. They are elected in staggered 4-year terms. The Board meets once a month at the library on the 2nd Tuesday of the month at 7pm.

Routine duties of board members are to:

  • Vote to approve the financial report and payment of bills
  • Approve all expenditures over $10,000
  • Vote on questions of policy
  • Evaluate the Director on an annual basis

The Board has five standing advisory committees:

  • Audit
  • Building and Grounds
  • Community Relations
  • Director Relations
  • Policy & Bylaws

Questions? Please call Director Barb Kruser at (630) 627-0316 x 265.
