Library Board

The Library Board is the governing body of the library.  They act much like a city council or school board, overseeing the finances, governing policies, and library facility.  The duties and composition are outlined in the City of West Branch’s Code of Ordinance and created by a popular vote.

The library board is comprised of 7 members.  Six members reside within the city limits of West Branch and one serves as a representative of rural Cedar County.

Board meetings are routinely held on the second Thursday of the month in the library’s community room.  For specific details on upcoming board meetings, please visit the library’s calendar of events.
