Public Appearances Before the Board of Trustees

All meetings of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library’s Board of Trustees are open to the public. Because space may be limited for seating, citizens interested in attending the meeting are encouraged to contact the office of the executive director so that sufficient seating may be provided ( If the attendance will exceed the capacity of the Board Room, the executive director will move the meeting, with the approval of the Board president, to a more appropriate location.

While Board meetings are open to the public for attendance, the purpose of these meetings is to allow the Board to transact the normal business of the institution. For this reason, interruptions by the public cannot be permitted. Board meetings are not public hearings.

Any person wishing to appear before the Board or Board committees to speak on any matter must sign in at the meeting and are requested to provide the following information:

  • Name, address, email, and phone number of person requesting to speak
  • Subject on which he/she wishes to speak

Any person who wishes to address the Board concerning a given item on the agenda will be allocated time not to exceed three (3) minutes.

The number of speakers on any given topic may be limited to three (3) speakers in opposition and three (3) speakers in favor of each item, at the discretion of the President.

Adopted by the Board of Trustees, April 23, 2015.
