Board of Trustees

The Monroe County Library System enriches the quality of life for all residents of the county by providing free access to informational, educational and recreational resources.

Monroe County Library System Board of Trustees

The Monroe County Library System is organized as a county library under Michigan law, but is operated independently of county government and receives no appropriated county funding.

The Library System is governed by a five member Board of Trustees, appointed to five-year terms by the Monroe County Board of Commissioners.

The Library Board establishes all Library policies, adopts an annual operating budget, and hires a Director to administer the operations of the Library.

The Library Board conducts its business during regular monthly meetings which are open to the public and are held in branch libraries throughout the system. The Board adopts its annual meeting calendar on or before January of each year. Most Board meetings are held on the second Monday of the month beginning at 6 PM.  Any changes in meeting times, dates, or locations are posted in advance. To confirm a meeting date, time, or location please call the library's business office at 241-5770.
