|Menominee County Library Board|
The Library Board is expected to act as the legal trustee of the library. The community has entrusted the library's welfare to the board and expects the board to see that the library is run correctly. The Board also has the responsibility to see that adequate funding is provided and to develop plans for the delivery of library services.
Most Michigan Library Boards are authorized to: adopt bylaws and rules for the board's governance, have exclusive control over the buildings and grounds of the library, control the expenditure of all funds credited to the library fund, appoint a library director (and delegate the hiring of other staff to the director), adopt an annual library budget, remove the library director, adopt rules and regulations regarding the use of the library, exclude from the use of the library anyone who willfully violates the board's rules and regulations, and determine the selection of library materials for inclusion in the library's collection.
A small number of appointed cirizens representing the community who, together, constitute the body which is officially responsible for the operation of the public library.
The term for these individuals is 5 years.
