Goverance

The Board of Trustees are elected by you, the voters of Forest Hill.

The Forest Hill Public Library District is governed by a five-member board of trustees.

Each Trustee is elected for a two year term. The terms are staggered so there is a Library Board election each year. Library trustees must be residents of Forest Hill and registered voters. The Forest Hill Public Library District Board of Trustees meets monthly, usually on the 4th Monday, at 5:30 p.m. These meetings are open to the public and we invite you to attend. The agenda is posted on the library's door and calendar/website at least three days prior to each meeting.
