Nearly all of Iowa's more than 500 public libraries are governed by a library board, also known as a board of trustees. Most Iowa public library boards have the authority to hire and evaluate the Library Director; adopt library policies; shift budget funds from one line item to another; approve library expenditures and more. 

The Board of Trustees work with the Library Director to oversee library operations including expenditure of library funds while advocating for the public library as a resource within our community. 

Board members serve for 6 year terms. Special term lengths can be appointed in order to ensure that any more than 2-3 board member terms do not all expire during the same fiscal year.
