Board of Library Trustees
As an independent special district, the governance of the district is vested in an elected administrative board of library trustees. The Lassen Library District Board of Library Trustees is comprised of five uncompensated, elected members. The library trustees are responsible for setting the personnel, operations, patron and financial policies and the strategic direction of the library district.
Trustees are elected to four-year terms; three trustees are elected during one election cycle and the other two trustees are elected during the next election cycle. Elections are held in even numbered years during regularly held state and local general elections. These members are elected by voters living within the district's boundaries (encompassing the city limits of Susanville). Board vacancies can be filled by resolution of the board, but the appointed trustees must seek voter approval at the end of the term for which they were appointed.
The current members of the Board of Library Trustees and their terms of service are:
