About Us
MCLS Board of Trustees & System Administration
The Monroe County Library System (MCLS) is governed by an 11-member Board of Trustees, appointed by the Monroe County Legislature. The Board sets MCLS policy, provides advice and direction to MCLS administration and supports library advocacy efforts and collaboration among member libraries.
As of June 2022, meetings have gone back to being held in person at the Central Library unless otherwise indicated below.
All regular meetings are open to the public. Citizens are welcome to address the Board of Trustees for a maximum of three minutes, beginning at Noon. To address the Board about an issue on a Library Board meeting agenda, please call 585-428-8046 or email debi.mansour@libraryweb.org by 10:00 a.m. on the day of the meeting and provide full name, address, organization represented (if any), and the topic.
