Library Board of Trustees
A seven-member board of trustees governs the library. The board meets at the library on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7 PM. They represent the interests of the people in our library district.
They adopt library policies, set the library’s annual budget, and hire the director. All library board meetings are open to the public. Meeting agendas are available at the library before each meeting.
The members of the board are:
Lisa Turney| Chair
Sheldon Wheaton | Vice-Chair
Robert Firth | Treasurer
Stacey Schmitt | Vice-Treasurer
Lea Chrisman | Secretary
- Finance Committee – Lea Chrisman, Stacey Schmitt, and Robert Firth
- Personnel Committee – Stacey Schmitt, Sheldon Wheaton, and Lisa Turney
- Building Committee – Robert Firth
Board Meeting Documents
The Board of Trustees operates according to a publicly-available set of bylaws. The board also utilizes a set of guiding principles known as RISE (Reading, Information, Space, and Entertainment) in determining the library’s direction.
Joining the Board
The board members serve four-year terms, with any Board vacancies being filled by election at the annual meeting. The position is a volunteer role, but it’s a vital position that helps determine the focus and future course of the library. It’s also a way to be part of a wonderful and integral asset to the community.
