The Library Board oversees the library’s budget and financial expenditures, supports the library through advocacy, and appoints a Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to provide general supervision over and direction of the operations of the library and its staff.

The Chatham-Kent Public Library Board is a governing board under the Public Library Act. The Library Board is comprised of four members of Municipal Council and seven citizen appointees. Municipal Council appoints all trustees, and approves the annual budget but does not authorize any specific actions or decisions of the Library Board. 

The CEO/Chief Librarian attends Library Board meetings and serves as the link between the Library and the Municipality's senior management team and Council. If you would like to make a deputation to the Library Board, please complete the Request to Make a Deputation form and submit it to CEO/Chief Librarian.

See the Library Policies page for the Library Board's governance policies.
