By Colorado Library Law, public libraries are required to have a Library Board of Trustees. Park County has seven members on this board with representation for each established library in the county. The board’s purpose is to work with the Libraries Manager in establishing library policy, advising the Libraries Manager on matters of library direction and service to the communities. The library board works with the Board of County Commissioners in making recommendations for the library budget and in personnel issues, such as employment of a Libraries Manager and annual personnel review.
The Board of County Commissioners is directly responsible for the Park County Public Libraries and supervision of the Libraries Manager.
