Boards of Trustees

The Mountain Regional Library System is governed by the Georgia University Board of Regents and overseen locally by the Mountain Regional Library System Board of Trustees. The Regional Board  meets at least 4 times per year, and is responsible for the establishment, management, and maintenance of public libraries in the counties of Fannin, Towns, and Union. The Regional Board also appoints the Director, who administers and coordinates the operation of the library within the basic goals, objectives, policies, and principles approved by the Regional Library Board.
