The Library Advisory Board works closely with the Library Director, providing an avenue for citizen involvement in guiding the library. The board consists of seven members – one appointed by each City Councilor – representing the city’s five voting districts, along with two ‘at large’ members.
The Library Advisory Board plays an important role representing the interests of the community in reviewing library policies, programs and initiatives.
The board meets regularly, usually at the Main Library.
Board meetings are open to the public. Meeting times and locations are subject to change, so please check the city’s calendar HERE for the latest information.
