Trustees are volunteers, appointed by the Douglas County Commissioners. The board adopts and oversees the budget, bylaws and policy; conducts long range planning; and hires and evaluates the library director. The board meets once a month, usually the third Thursday, at various library locations around the county. Specific meeting dates, and locations can be found here . Questions or contact to trustees should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Please note: DCL Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month at 7 pm.
Informal Board lunch meetings are held at 11:30 am on the second Wednesday of every month. These meetings are for discussion only and no formal action is taken.
Foundation and committee meetings are typically scheduled -as needed- from 5:30-6:30 p.m. on the same dates as the Board meetings. Foundation Board updates are also provided at the regular DCL Board meetings.
