Board of Control

The Library Board is an all-volunteer body of local citizens. The Police Jury appoints the Library Board, with each juror appointing the member from his/her district. Library Board members serve 5 year terms, with one possible renewal. It is the responsibility of the board to set library policy, oversee the financial functions of the library and to hire the director. The Library Board meets each month, on the third Tuesday of the month, at 3:30 PM, usually at our administrative offices.

** Due to COVID-19, the Rapides Parish Board of Control has cancelled the regular monthly meeting for April 2020. **
