The library is governed by a seven-member board of trustees, with members appointed by the Jay County Council, Jay County Commission, or Jay School Corporation. Members are appointed for four-year terms, serve without pay, and meet at least monthly. While the library is primarily funded by county property tax, money is also received from the county option income tax, financial institution tax, excise tax, fines, fees and copy machine receipts.


Board Meetings

Board meetings will be held on the second Monday, at 4:00 p.m. in the South section of the library’s Community Room unless otherwise posted.   Changes will be published as provided by law.
