Congratulations on your appointment to the Ecorse Public Library Board. We look forward to working with you. The links below will serve as your new member. Please print, organize, and bring your newly compiled packet/notebook with you to each Board meeting. Your packet/notebook will be your reference guide and contain member and key library staff contact information as well as information on completing the Freedom of Information Act and Open Meetings Act training which is required by all new elected officials and must be completed within 60 days of being sworn in.
You will be receiving more information during the orientation, but, before that happens, I want to share some basic information that you will hopefully find helpful.
Board meetings are typically on the 2nd Monday of the month at 6:00 pm at the Ecorse Public Library, 4184 W. Jefferson Ave., Ecorse 48229. EPLB Secretary, Kimberly Alexander will send out a request for agenda items at the beginning of each month. If you have anything that you would like added to the agenda, you can let her know, and we will include it on the agenda.
The EPLB packet will typically go out the Friday before the board meeting. It is emailed out to all trustees and will be posted on the website. There are times when information is not included in the board packet online as it pertains to items that will be discussed in a closed session. Another item that is always emailed is the minutes from the previous month’s meeting. They are then posted on the website after the board has approved them.
If you have any questions or want to discuss anything in the board packet or anything else, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or another Board member. A formal orientation will be conducted on Monday, October 11, 2021, at 6:00 pm in a closed session.
We look forward to working with you.
Ecorse Public Library Board
