The Winding Rivers Library System board of trustees is a twenty member group with statutory authority to oversee all operations and activities of the system. Trustee terms are for three years, with appointments made by the various county board chairs with approval of the full county boards. Representation for the seven counties in the region is roughly proportional to population, with no county having fewer than two representatives on the system board. Appointees can be local library board trustees, citizens-at-large, or county board supervisors; library staff are not allowed to be on system boards, and no county can have more than one county supervisor on the system board.
The WRLS board meets six times per year, at 6:30 pm on the fourth Wednesday of odd numbered months. Unless otherwise noted, meetings are conducted in La Crosse.
If you or someone you know would like to serve on the WRLS board, convey this interest to your county clerk or board chairperson.
