Advisory board members make recommendations and act as a liaison between the library, local government and the community. They are charged with monitoring library operations and advising on such things as policies, plans, personnel, and the budget.
The Oklahoma Statutes (11 O.S. §31–104) address the powers and duties of library trustees by stating that “the library board shall have control and supervision of the library, may appoint a suitable librarian and remove the librarian, subject to approval of the municipal governing body, fix any fees to be charged and have such other powers as may be provided by ordinance.”
Agendas are available prior to the meetings. Minutes are available following approval.
