Library Board of Trustees

The Library Board meets on the 3rd Monday of the month (except January and February due to holidays), the regular meeting dates for 2020 are:  1/27/20; 2/24/20; 3/16/20; 4/20/20; 5/18/20; 6/15/20; 7/20/20; 8/17/20; 9/21/20; 10/19/20; 11/16/20; 12/21/20

Responsibilites of the Library Board of Trustees is to advocate for the library in the community and advocate for the community as a member of the library board.   To be a library advocate is to work for the betterment of library services for the community.   Advocacy includes working to obtain adequate funding for the library; pursuing opportunities to meet and speak with community groups; making sure the community’s needs and interests are paramount when making board decisions. 

The Board must also plan for the future of the library.  Planning is one of the most important trusts that the community gives to the library board.  Planning is deciding what is going to happen with library services over the next few years.  It is taking charge of the library’s future and creating it to be responsive to what the community needs. 

To monitor and evaluate the overall effectiveness of the library is key.  The community puts its trust in the library board to make sure the library is operating the way it should.  For example, the library board is familiar with the library’s budget - where the money is coming from and how it will be spent.  The board monitors monthly financial reports and approves the bills so they can be paid.  The board also helps determine whether the community is satisfied with the service received from the library. 

The Board must also set library policies.  The library board spends much of its time on policy issues - developing policies and monitoring the effectiveness of those policies.  (Policy is a carefully designed, broadly stated, written guideline for actions and decision of the library.)  Once adopted by the board, library staff carries out the policies on a day-to-day basis.
