Summit County 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.

View the 2014 strategic plan here. A Strategic Plan Committee is currently working on writing a new strategic plan. If you are interested in serving on this committee, please feel free to email David at dachinoy@me.com to learn more.

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 with comments or concerns.
