Board of Trustees

The library board, the district’s governing authority, meets monthly to make decisions about library services, policies, finances, and related business. The full terms of those elected is four years. See the library’s Bylaws. Board meetings are normally held the fourth Monday of the month at 7:00 pm in the library  at 4000 W Pratt Ave, Lincolnwood IL 60712. Agendas are posted no later than 48 hours prior to the meeting. Approved minutes are posted after they have been approved, typically at the next regular Board meeting.

Upcoming Trustee Elections
