  • The brief may include any requests being made.

  • Maximum time for the summary presentation is 5 minutes.
  • Submit the request and the full brief to the Director’s Office at Central Library NO LATER THAN 12:00 noon on the Wednesday PRIOR to the scheduled meeting.
  • The written brief will be posted to the Library’s website the Friday before the Board meeting at which it will be presented.
