About the Board

What is involved in being a 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:

  • Vote to approve the financial report and payment of bills
  • Approve all expenditures over $20,000
  • Vote on questions of policy
  • Evaluate the Director on an annual basis

The Board has three standing advisory committees:

  • Audit
  • Director Relations
  • Policy & Bylaws
