Library Board of Trustees

The Stoughton Public Library Board is comprised of nine members appointed by the Mayor and empowered by Wisconsin State Statute. One member is a City Council representative appointed by the Mayor and one is the school superintendent or their designee. The remaining members are interested volunteers from the library service area. The whole board meets on the third Wednesday of each month with board committees meeting as needed. The agenda for each meeting is posted at the library and is available on this website. The public is invited to attend any of the open meetings that have topics of interest to them. The general purpose of the board is to hire the library director, approve long-range goals, provide financial oversight, develop policies, and to create a statement of mission and vision that articulates the library's goals for service to the community.

Here are the Library Board's Goals for 2016.
