Parkland Regional Library is governed by a board appointed by the 64 member municipalities that meets four times a year. The Executive Committee is comprised of 10 board members and meets more frequently throughout the year to address ongoing business. Our current board chair is Debra Smith.


Parkland publishes two newsletters for board members, Board Talk, with highlights from Parkland's board meetings, and the Trustee Telegram, a quarterly publication with information for local board members around the region. If you would like to see back issues of either of these newsletters, please contact us.
