The Public Libraries Act (RSO, 1990), which is a provincial statute, designates Library Boards as governingboards. The Act grants boards with the authority to make policy and to govern the library’s affairs. For the most part, library boards:

  • determine which services are offered by the library
  • seek funds through the Municipal Council’s budget
  • seek additional funding and grants
  • appoint a Chief Executive Officer

The Rideau Lakes Public Library welcomes new and returning members to the Library Board!
