In order to provide quality library service to our community, the Clinton Community Library requires a working team of a Library Director and a Board of Trustees who are informed and make the necessary decisions. The Library Board is composed of up to 9 Trustees who serve a term of 3 years. Trustees set library policy, advocate for the library, and help steer the library toward the future.

Prospective Trustees are expected to:

  • Commit the time that is necessary to carry out the duties of a Trustee. This includes time to become and stay knowledgeable about public library issues, to attend Board meetings, and to carry out Board assignments.
  • Be genuinely interested in public libraries and understand the importance of public libraries in meeting the educational, recreational, and informational needs of the community.
  • Understand the local community, its social and cultural needs, and be willing to communicate those needs to the Board.
  • Be able to work with others to reach a common goal.
  • Be open-minded, intellectually curious, respectful of the opinions of others, and seek to provide equal library service to all.
