Board of Trustees

Featured Image Title

The St. Charles Public Library District was established originally as the St. Charles Township Public Library in 1906. In 1979, the Township Library was converted by referendum to a Library District, an independent and autonomous unit of local government.

 

The Library is governed by an elected, seven-member Board of Trustees, which is responsible for the Library’s finances and for the formulation of its policies. Trustees serve six-year terms. The Library Board meets the second Wednesday of each month with the exception of August. The meetings are held in the Huntley Community Room.
