The Lopez Library Board of Trustees is comprised of five voting members, appointed by the County Commissioners for five-year terms. Library Director Lou Pray prepares budgetary information for the board, provides news of county, state and national library issues, and attends all meetings as a non-voting board member.
Trustees set the direction of the Library by creating policies and long-range plans, assuring compliance with laws, and overseeing the Library budget. The board hires the Director and takes responsibility and liability for the Library, while leaving daily operational management to the Director.
