Board of Trustees
The Library Board is governed by 7 members and usually meets at 10:15 on the third Tuesday of each month here at the Main Library. Due to the Main Library’s elevator being under repair, the Fairfield County District Library Board of Trustees will move its regular Board meetings scheduled for May 16, June 20, and July 18 at 10:15 a.m. to Fairfield Federal Savings & Loan, 111 East Main Street, Room 317, Lancaster, Ohio.
