Board of Library Commissioners

About the Board

The Board of Library Commissioners consists of seven members appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. Each member serves a two-year term. The Board is responsible for considering all policy matters regarding the development and operation of the City's Library system and serves in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and City Council. Each member serves until reappointment or until a successor is appointed.

Board Meetings

During the current State of Emergency and in the interest of public health and safety, all members of Library Board will be participating in meetings by teleconference. In accordance with the Executive Order, there will be no members of the public in attendance at the meetings. We are providing alternatives to in-person attendance for viewing and participating in meetings.
In lieu of in-person attendance, members of the public may submit their comments online.
The public may view the meeting on the City's Public Meetings YouTube channel.

Board of Library Commission meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 12:30 p.m. in the Commission Room, located on the ninth floor of the Central Library, 330 Park Blvd., in downtown San Diego. The Board may alter the meeting dates and the place of meeting as needed.

Meeting notices, agendas, and minutes for the current fiscal year are published here online for public review. There is no meeting notice, agenda, or minutes when meetings are not held.
