The five-member Board of Trustees governs the Kitsap Regional Library System. Board members are volunteers who are appointed for five-year terms, with no trustee serving more than two consecutive terms.
Kitsap County Commissioners appoint members of the Board of Trustees to represent the five geographic regions of Kitsap County.
The KRL Board of Trustees sets policy for library services throughout the system. The Board also hires and holds accountable the Library Director, who oversees the library organization and day-to-day operations. The actions of the KRL Board are governed by the Board's bylaws.
You are encouraged to attend the board's monthly meetings and share your opinions, concerns and ideas.
Correspondence to the Board should be addressed to:
