Board of Directors
The Friends is a membership organization. We invite members of our community to join us to support and advocate for the Boca Raton Public Library.
Our Board is made up of dedicated members of our community who oversee and vote on the distribution of funding in support of Library programming and equipment.
The Board also plans and presents Friends cultural programs at the Library, provides special educational events to our members, promotes community outreach and advocacy, engages volunteers for Friends activities, prepares email newsletters to subscribers, and consults on the management and operation of our bookstore.
Would you like to become a board member? Directors must be a Friends member, assume a responsibility with the Board (such as serving on a committee), and demonstrate a commitment to the Friends mission and objectives.
Fill out and return the application. Applications may be turned in any time of year. The Nominating Committee submits a slate of nominees to be voted on by the Friends membership at the Annual Meeting in October or November. Occasionally vacancies are available to be filled mid-year. The Nominating Committee will contact applicants to interview and answer questions.
