Library Board Meetings
The five members of the North Valley Public Library Board of Trustees are elected by the Stevensville and Lone Rock School Districts. Library Board meetings are open to the public. The Board of Trustees welcome public comments and feedback.
If you are unable to attend a board meeting, but would like to give input, email one of the Board members. Contact information can be found HERE at Montana.Gov. Please indicate whether you want comments read into the public record at the Board meeting. You can also submit comments to the Director of the Library at firstname.lastname@example.org. "Comments may be given orally or in writing. Written comments should be submitted to the library director at least 24 hours prior to the meeting."
Board Meetings are held on the THIRD WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH at 3 pm, usually in the library. During the COVID-19 pandemic, meetings may take place online through Zoom. Public may participate online or by phone. To find out if the meeting is in-person or online, Zoom link, and/or call-in information look at the meeting agenda below. Agendas are posted by the Friday before the meeting.
Occasionally, meetings may be moved or cancelled. Any changes are posted here. The agenda is posted on the front window of the library, the library website, the Ravalli County Calendar, and the Town of Stevensville bulletin board. The library also sends a notice of meetings to the Bitterroot Star to be added to the paper's calendar of events.
Once a year, there is a public hearing on the budget. Notices appear in the newspaper and the budget is available for the public to review. After the public hearing the budget is passed and a copy is sent to Ravalli County.
