Board & Staff

The Library's mission is to provide access to information, content, and collaborative space consistent with people's needs.

The Library's Board of Trustees is comprised 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 four 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 Tuesday of each month at 2:00 pm, at the Library. Dates and times are available on the calendar.

Upcoming agenda here, no fewer than two days before the meeting. Physical copies are posted at the Library.
