Board & Staff

The Library's Board of Trustees is composed of five appointed volunteers, who may each serve two consecutive five-year terms. Two trustees are appointed by the City Commission, two by the County Commissioners, and one at-large trustee is appointed by the other trustees. The Board oversees library operations via the powers granted to it by Montana law. The Board's by-laws are here.
Board meetings are usually on the third Wednesday of each month at 4:00pm, at the Library. Please click here for the next agenda (when available); go to the Calendar to see the date for the next meeting.
