The Van Buren County Library is governed by our five-member Board of Trustees, appointed by the County Judge. Each Board member is eligible to serve up to two five-year terms. One board position comes up every year for appointment.
The administrative board is charged with employing a competent library director, determining library policies and promoting library services.
Additionally, the board is charged with securing adequate funding with which to satisfactorily operate the library.
The board meets on the second Wednesday of each month at 5PM.
