Much of the work of the library is done by our great staff, but they can’t do it without the participation of the community. Everyone is encouraged to get involved with the library through its committees or the Friends of the Library. Here is a list of current committee membership. Feel free to contact the chair of any committee with any questions or to get involved.
Governance- Francis Schell, chair
This committee has the primary responsibility for cultivating and recruiting future Board members. It will also take the lead in the development of a long-range Strategic Plan and as needed suggest updated to the Mission Statement and By Laws. It is also the responsibility of the Governance Committee to ensure participation in the Library’s wellbeing by all Board members, to promote diversity within the Board and to focus on strategic issues.
Fund Development Committee- Garth Kobal, chair
This committee is responsible for developing, encouraging, and engaging philanthropic culture among Library patrons, the Board, and in the larger community, including businesses and other organizations. Its goal is to effect positive outcomes in the Library’s fiscal health by instilling a sense of ownership of, and responsibility toward the Library among individuals and institutions in our community.
