Library Board

Established under state law by the City of Appleton, the library is governed by a nine-member citizen Board of Trustees, including one alderperson, one Appleton Area School District representative, and seven other citizens appointed by the Mayor. Most Board appointments are for three-year terms.

The Board makes budget and policy decisions and oversees the staff. Board members are happy to talk to others about their work making the Library work for the community.

The Library Board normally meets in one of the Lower Level Meeting Rooms or the Board Meeting Room in Administration. Current Board Agendas will be posted in the week prior to the Board meeting. Please contact Library Administration (920-832-6170) for further information.
