Thomas Ford Memorial Library

The Thomas Ford Board of Trustees meetings, usually held at 7 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month, are open to the public. Check our Calendar of Events for the next meeting.

The Board of Trustees is composed of seven members who are elected to four-year terms. These trustees are elected representatives of the community of Western Springs. To serve, candidates must live in the village and be of voting age.

Responsibilities of the Board of Trustees include:

  • selecting and hiring a qualified Library Director
  • ensuring that the Library has funds and a budget
  • developing (with the Library Director) written policies, long and short range plans, and wage classifications
  • knowing local, state, and federal laws that pertain to libraries
  • attending monthly board meetings and other events

To inquire about becoming a member of the Board of Trustees, contact Anne Kozak at 708-246-0520 or by email at kozak@fordlibrary.org.
