What is the Advisory Board and what is it’s role?
Each of the eight members of the Rains County Public Library Advisory Board is appointed by the Rains County Commissioners’ Court to serve a two-year term. Members may be reappointed to serve additional terms. The Advisory Board acts as a liaison between the community, the Commissioners’ Court, and the Library Director.
The Board assists the Library Director in developing policies, budget proposals, and in other important matters. Their recommendations are then presented to the Commissioners’ Court for their approval or rejection.
The board members also promote the Library and its resources to the community.
How are Advisory Board Members Selected?
Any person who would like to serve on the Rains County Public Library Advisory Board or recommend someone to serve should contact one of the current Board members, the Rains County Judge, one of the County Commissioners, or the Library Director. A person must be at least 18 years of age and reside in Rains County to be eligible to serve on the Library Board.
Library Advisory Board Meetings
The library advisory board meets on the 4th Monday of every other month at 5:30 pm, beginning in February.
