Get involved! The Gretna Public Library Board of Trustees is currently looking for new members!
The Library Board serves as the governing body that oversees the creation of policies and functionality of the Library. The Board acts as a sort of “checks and balances” system for the Library, and must approve all reports submitted by the Library Director before they can be turned into the City. The Library Board is made up of seven members from the Gretna community and they each serve a term of four years. The Library Board meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30pm.
If you are interested in joining the Library Board, then please complete this application and turn it into the Library or City Hall.
Drop in for a fun craft or activity. Come any time between 3:00-4:00 and leave when you’re done.
