Summit County Library Board of Trustees

The Library is a county department which abides by State library laws. The seven member Board of Trustees (BOT) is appointed by the Summit County Commissioners. The members are selected to represent the geographic area of the county and serve for a 5-year term without financial compensation. The BOT governs the library, establishes policies, and employs a library director to carry out the policies and manage the library.

The BOT meets monthly on the fourth Thursday of each month, usually at the County Commons. Meetings are open to everyone, please come by or email us at [email protected] with comments or concerns.View the 2018 strategic plan here.
