About the Board

Boone County Public Library is a community resource that links people of all ages, interests, and circumstances with the recorded wisdom, experiences, and ideas of others.

Operation of the Boone County Public Library District is vested in the Boone County Public Library District Board of Trustees, a body corporate, in accordance with KRS 173.520.

The Board is composed of five members representing the community. Members must reside within Boone County and be committed to the provision of library services within the county. Members of the Board of Trustees are appointed by the Boone County Judge-Executive with the approval of the Boone County Fiscal Court. Each member may serve two four-year terms.

The Library is governed in accordance with its bylaws. The Board of Trustees is responsible for establishing policy, approving the budget, and ensuring that adequate funds are available to finance the budget. The Board oversees the library's finances, the library director, and is responsible for understanding the library's mission, programs, and services delivered to the community.
