Board of Trustees
Library Board of Trustees
Saline District Library is governed by a 7-member group of volunteer residents who are appointed either by the City of Saline or by the Saline School District. Terms are two years. The monthly board meeting is typically held at 7 pm on the third Tuesday of every month and is open to the public. The Board encourages people to email them.
What does a Board Member do?
Most Michigan public libraries have policymaking boards. By law, library boards are authorized to: adopt bylaws and rules for the board’s governance and for use of the library, hire a library director, adopt an annual operating budget, and provide for adequate funding for the library. The Board hires a library director to administer the daily operations of the library. Board duties include: attend and participate at board meetings, be a team player and support board decisions, be an advocate for the library, and respect and support the role of the library director. Anyone interested in serving on the Board should contact the Library Director for further details.

The Library Board of Trustees approves an annual budget at its November board meeting for the fiscal year, which runs December 1 – November 30. Public libraries are required to have audits, pursuant to the Michigan Uniform Budgeting and Accounting Act, which must be performed by a certified public accountant. The Library utilizes the professional services of Plante Moran, PLLC to conduct the annual audit.
