Library Advisory Board

The Lake Oswego Public Library Advisory Board is a group of citizens that wish to play a role in the development of the City's public library. Each board member is appointed by the City Council either to a three-year term or to fill a vacancy.

The board advises the Library Director and the City Council on matters that relate to library services, policies, and funding. Members are asked to uphold the right of all citizens to full access to information and to participate in long-range planning for library services.  The board meets the second Wednesday of the month at 7 p.m.  Contact the Library at 503-697-6583 for more information about this board.
