Current Board of Trustees
|Dean DiDario||Vice President|
The seven-member Mesa County Libraries Board of Trustees governs the Mesa County Public Library District. The Board of Trustees adopts and oversees the budget, bylaws and policies; conducts long-range planning; and hires and evaluates the library director. Trustees are unpaid volunteers who serve a five-year term, renewable once. Trustees are appointed by the Mesa County Commissioners.
Regularly scheduled board meetings are on the last Thursday of the month at 5:30 p.m. in the Central Library Monument Room, 443 6th Street, Grand Junction, Colorado, unless otherwise noted on the agenda. There is no meeting in November, and the meeting in December is the first Thursday of the month at 5:00 p.m. Time is set aside at each meeting for citizens to be heard. We welcome you to join us at our monthly meetings.
