The Fairfax County Public Library Board of Trustees is responsible for library policies and for making budget recommendations to the Board of Supervisors.
The 12-member volunteer Board comprises one member from each of the nine supervisory districts in Fairfax County, each appointed by the district supervisor; one member-at-large, approved by the Chairman of the Board; one member appointed by the City of Fairfax Council; and one member nominated by the School Board.
The Library Board of Trustees meets on the second Wednesday of each month except August. Most meetings are held at 7 p.m. at George Mason Regional Library. The public and press are invited to attend. A maximum of ten people may register to speak on library concerns during the public comment period at each monthly meeting. For information or to register to speak, call (703) 324-8324.
To request an interpreter for individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing, contact the library where the meeting will be held two weeks prior to the meeting date.
