Lincoln County Public Library Board

A five-member Board of Trustees governs the affairs of Lincoln County Public Library. The County Judge Executive appoints board members for a maximum of two consecutive four-year terms.  The Board of Trustees determines the library’s mission, purpose, and policies. It is also responsible for the fiscal and fiduciary aspects of the library. The Board of Trustees appoints members of an Advisory Board that serve renewable three-year terms.

Library boards have been created by law to act as the governing body of the library. Members of the library board are called library trustees and are public officials with powers delegated to them as a public trust. On this page, you’ll find KDLA resources to aid trustees in fulfilling their role in serving their community.

Library Board meetings are held the second Monday of each month @ 4:00 p.m.
