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.

Michael Watts (President)
Douglas Olivero (Vice-President)
Jean Carter (Secretary)
Linda Hiltabrand (Treasurer)
