Library Board

As a library district, our 7-member board of trustees governs the library. Board members are elected at large from residents within the library district for 6-year terms. Trustee elections are held in odd-numbered years. Board members are not compensated for their service to the District. Trustees derive their authority and responsibilities from state law, 75 ILCS 16/ Public Library District Act of 1991.

Our current board is:

  • Michael Watts (President)
  • Douglas Olivero (Vice-President)
  • Jean Carter (Secretary)
  • Kent Maze
  • Larry Sittler
  • Bo Windy
  • Laurie Moss
