Board of directors

At the November 2, 2010 General Election the voters of Hood River County approved the formation of a Special Library District. The District is an independent unit of local government dedicated to library operation in Hood River County and is governed by an independent, unpaid Board of Directors elected by the local community. Board members serve 4-year terms.

The Library Board welcomes your suggestions and questions. Can you help us envision our library? What services are important to you? Public input is much appreciated! Meetings are open to the public.

Regular meetings are held on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7.00p in the Jeanne Marie Gaulke Community Meeting Room in the Hood River branch library, 502 State St, Hood River.

Meeting packets and minutes can be found further down on this page.

Board contact information and terms

You can contact the entire Board of Directors by emailing board@hoodriverlibrary.org. You can also contact each individual Board member.
