Library Board Committees

The incoming Chairman nominates the members of all committees and designate the Chairman and Vice Chairman of each committee, subject to ratification by the Board. The appointment of committees takes place at the last regular meeting of the Board held before June 30 of each year with the committee members taking office on July 1 of each year.

All standing committees, except for the Executive Committee, may or may not be members of the Board.   However, the Chairman and Vice Chairman of all committees are members of the Board. All standing committees take office on July 1 of each year and serve for a term of one year or until their successors are elected and qualified.

All committees, except for the Executive Committee, have only advisory powers. Any action recommended by such a committee shall be referred to the Board for action.

The Board has the following standing committees:   Executive, Nominating, Budget, Archives, and Reconsideration of Library Materials.  The Board may have such other committees as it determines from time to time, with the number of members and duties to be decided by the Board in each case.
