Library Advisory Board

The Lake Oswego Library Advisory Board is a seven member advisory body that plays 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 along with one youth member serving a one year term.

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.
