Board

The Public Libraries Act (RSO, 1990), which is a provincial statute, designates Library Boards as governing boards. 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 Board sets and follows the Board Bylaws.

Meetings & Minutes

The Board usually meets at the Portland branch the fourth Thursday of the month, except July and December. Please consult our event calendar for specific times and for changing circumstances.
