Well-informed, knowledgeable public library trustees help create better libraries. Trustees hold a position of trust and are responsible for financial oversight of the library: hiring and evaluation of the library director; representing the best interest of their community; and complying with and upholding library law.
Trustees will gain the knowledge they need to effectively do their jobs and be acknowledged for their efforts. They must have a current library card from the Maroa Public Library. Newly elected board members must complete the Illinois Open Meetings Act Training within 90 days of elected or appointed office. This training should be completed annually.
