Library Trustee Appointment Process

Agendas and Minutes | Financial Information | By-laws | IGA | Members | Home

Colorado Library law (CR 24-90-109) defines the formation as well as the powers and duties of Colorado library district trustees. Simply, the governmental bodies that founded Poudre River Public Library Trust District - in this case, Larimer County and the City of Fort Collins - retain the authority to appoint and, if necessary, to remove library trustees.

After the initial board appointments, the governmental bodies establishing a district have the authority to delegate future appointments to the board itself, if they deem it appropriate, but retain the ability to reassert their appointment prerogative at will.

The very same process employed to appoint the initial Poudre River Public Library District Board of Trustees will be utilized - per consensus at the time of the district formation - to fill future trustee positions. The process will facilitate continued leadership between the governmental bodies as well as protect the District from majority interests of the Board of Trustees.

Any details not covered by law, are defined in collaboration with our governing bodies.

Through the appointment process, the founding governmental units and their elected officials retain an enduring measure of oversight and authority.

The Poudre River Public Library District Trustees are responsible for the management and supervision of the libraries within the district. They are responsible for the appropriation and spending of District funds as well as submitting an annual budget.

They will supervise and govern service agreements between the District and governmental bodies. They will facilitate the development and adopt final versions of the bylaws, rules, and regulations for the library district.
