Terms of Office

Library Trustees are appointed to a three year term by the Mayor with the advice and consent of the City Council. Each year on June 30, three trustee's terms expire. Trustees may be reappointed for additional terms subject to the same application and interview process as new candidates. All City boards and commissions have a limit of three consecutive terms.
