Board of Trustees

About the Board

Library Trustees are appointed by elected officials to set library policies, adopt official budget recommendations, and develop long range plans for library development. Residents are welcome to share ideas with Library Trustees and to attend monthly Library Board meetings.

The Board of Trustees of the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library usually meets on the 4th Monday of the month at 3:00 pm.  

The fiscal year schedule is updated here annually or available as a pdf: FY24 Schedule.

Board meeting handouts, statistical, equipment, and financial reports from previous years can be found in the archives.
