Public Library Trustees have the responsibility of ensuring that the library operates efficiently, effectively, and legally, and continually grows and changes to meet community needs.

Five members are appointed to the Jackson County Board of Trustees by the county commission. They work closely with the library director and administrators, overseeing operations and growth.
