Board of Trustees
About the Library Board of Trustees
The Fort Smith Public Library is governed by a seven-member citizen Board of Trustees. The trustees are residents of Fort Smith, appointed by the Mayor with approval by the Fort Smith Board of Directors. Each trustee is appointed to a five-year term and may be reappointed to a second five-year term. Applications for board positions are available on the City of Fort Smith website.
The Board of Trustees is responsible for the overall direction and management of the Fort Smith Public Library. The board generally meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 4:30 p.m. Most meetings are held at the Main Library, but occasionally the board meets at a branch library.
2021 Board of Trustees members are:
Jeremy Wann, President
Andy Smith, Vice President
Sara Davis, Secretary
Pamela Roberts, Treasurer
