This seven member Board is established by the State of Oregon in ORS §357.465. Members are appointed by the Mayor with the consent of the additional City Council members. The Board meets most often at the Brookwood Library, with meetings occasionally held at the Shute Park Library. 

As provided by ORS §357.490 and Hillsboro Municipal Code subchapter 2.36, the Library Board has the following responsibilities:

  • Serves in an advisory capacity to City Council.The primary function is to provide policy and administrative rules recommendations related to library services. 
  • Connects with the community to enhance support and promote advocacy for library funding, facilities and services.

Membership Requirements

While the City remains a member of Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS), two of the Board members must be residents of unincorporated Washington County, preferably within the Hillsboro Public Library service area, as defined by WCCLS.

Members may serve for no more than two full consecutive terms (a term is four years), but anyone may be appointed again to the Board after an interval of one year.
