Library Board

The Library Board is an essential part of library operations.  They are the leadership that help set the policies and oversee the financial operations of the library.  Board members have the opportunity to serve as a director or as a member of the executive, and have opportunites to join committees if they so choose.  If you are interested in having a say in how your public library is run, this is the place to be!  The Library Board meets every 2nd Thursday of the month from 6-8pm.  Applications are available here.

Friends of the Library

The Friends of the Library is a separate group that meets between 4 and 6 times throughout the year to plan and fundraise projects for the Library.  The money raised helps us purchase equipment, furniture, and other things that make our Library great.  Members are free to choose which projects they wish to participate in.  If you are interested in joining the Friends of the Library, call the Library to find out when the next meeting will be held and check out their brochure below.
