Board of Trustees

The library is governed by a Board of Trustees, whose members are appointed by the Mayor as provided in K.S.A. 12-1222, with powers and duties as provided in Kansas Statutes 12-1215 and 12-1225. The Board has the authority to levy a property tax budget for the support and operation of the library. The Board hires an administrator, the Library Director, and they establish the policies by which the library is administered.

The Board normally meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7 a.m. Agendas are available online.

The Salina Public Library’s public comment policy is adhered to during the meeting.
