The Board of Library Trustees oversees the operation of the library, establishes and revises policies, advises and approves budgets, and promotes library services. Trustees are elected to four-year terms every two years at the regular election scheduled for trustees of public library districts under the Election Code (10 ILCS 5/1/-1).

For more information please view our CPLD Board of Trustees Bylaws.

In April 2023 we will have three trustee spots available, please view our 2023 Trustee Announcement for more information.
