Board of Trustee Meetings
Board meetings are held on the third Thursday of every month. Community members are welcome to address the Board during Community Comments time and will need to contact the library to be placed on the agenda.
The Board of Trustees is committed to being open and transparent about decisions made about the Library. Each month, the Board reads the prepared minutes from the month before and then makes a motion to approve the minutes or make amendments. Once amended and approved, monthly minutes are signed by the Secretary and are available in PDF form below. Copies of monthly Board minutes can be obtained at the Library.
Filling Board Vacancies
Trimble County Public Library publicly announces vacancies with the Board through the website, newspapers and social media. Community members can access copies of the application in the following ways:
1. Ask for a copy at the front circulation desk
2. Print a PDF copy of the Board of Trustees Application
3. Fill out an electronic version of the Board of Trustee Application.
Applications will be reviewed by current Board members during regularly scheduled Board Meetings. Two names will be chosen to submit to the State Librarian three to four months before the vacancy occurs per KRS 65.008. After the appointment is made, the county judge/executive or mayor’s office sends a copy of the letter of appointment or the minutes of the fiscal court or council meeting to KDLA for their records.
