Board of Trustees

Columbia County Rural Library Board of Trustees meets on the 3rd Monday of every month at 7pm via Zoom. If the 3rd Monday falls on a holiday the meeting will take place the 4th Monday.

Board Meetings are meetings between the Trustees and Director, but the public is welcome to attend. Every regular meeting has a public comment period on the agenda for community members to make comments. Our Public Comment Policy can be viewed here.
