MPL Board of Trustees

Governance

The library is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Manhattan Public Library Board of Trustees consists of seven members appointed by the mayor with the approval of the city commission (K.S.A. 12-1222). In addition to the appointed members, the mayor serves as an ex officio member of the board, which means that by virtue of the office or position, the mayor is a member. Trustees serve a four-year term and are eligible for one reappointment.

Board meetings in 2022 are scheduled to meet at 4 p.m. on the following dates. Any changes in the schedule or notice of special meetings will be posted below and on the library’s public bulletin board.
