The nine-member Library Board, established by City Ordinance in 1898, governs the Library pursuant to the bylaws. The members of the Board are selected by the Caucus and appointed by the Mayor with approval by the City Council. Trustees serve a maximum of two three-year terms. Officers are elected annually in July.
The Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month. Meetings are held in the Reed Room located on the first floor. The public is welcome to attend. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
The board welcomes public participation. Please see our Public Comment at Board Meetings Policy for guidelines on how to participate.
