Board of Trustees

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 regularly once a month, except August.
