Meetings

Library Board meetings fall under the "sunshine laws" of Ohio and are open to the public.  Public guests are welcome at any regular Board meeting.  Dates for this calendar year are provided here. 

It is highly recommended, however, that individuals considering attending a meeting call in advance to verify the date, time, and location.  Occasionally, changes to the schedule are made to accommodate other library priorities. 

To verify dates and times please call the Administrative office at: (440) 250-5451.

A seat on the Porter Public Library Board of Trustees will be open as of December 31, 2016.

Trustees represent the community at large and their varied library interests. The only prerequisite for applicants is that they have an interest in public library issues and wish to become a public library advocate. The Board, the policy-making body of the library, is composed of seven members who serve overlapping seven-year terms.

Those interested in applying for a position as a trustee may get an application form here, or at the reception desk, the library’s Administration Department (440) 250 5451, or by email: karen.hunt@westlakelibrary.org.

Application deadline is September 21, 2016.
