The Library Board of Trustees wants to hear from you.

We are forming a committee to explore and advise the Board on measures to sustain cost-effective library operations in FY2026 and beyond.

We are seeking 6 community members to join members of our Friends groups, library Board members and staff, and representatives of other library partners to learn about what ACLS does, how ACLS is funded, and recommend how ACLS sustains cost-effective library operations in the upcoming years.

The committee will meet once a month starting August 8, 2024 at 6PM. Community members are expected to attend all meetings so that the committee can deliver its recommendations by January 15, 2025 to the Library Board.

While all meetings are open to the public, community members will be selected from those who apply. Applicants will be screened for geographic, demographic and other factors to represent the entire Allegany County community. Applications will be accepted until July 24, 2024 and representatives of the community will be notified by August 1, 2024.

*Or ask the library staff for a paper application.

The tentative meeting dates are as follows from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the LaVale Library:
