Governance - The Boyle County Public Library

Governance

Library Governance:




The Boyle County Public Library is operated through a joint venture between the Danville Library, Inc., and the Boyle County Library District. This contractual partnership is unique in Kentucky. It combines the strengths of two organizations to provide a level of public library service that neither organization could easily achieve on its own.

The Danville Library, Inc.


Library service in Danville began in 1893 with a small subscription library of just 300 books. In 1920, in order to purchase property at the corner of 3rd Street and Broadway, the Danville Library Board of Trustees was formed. Today, the current 12-member Board oversees the day-to-day operations of the Library.

The Boyle County Library District


Under the authority granted by state government in KRS 173, the citizens of Boyle County undertook a petition drive in 1971 to establish a library district with local taxing authority as a means of expanding library services for all Boyle Countians. A 5-member Board of Trustees oversees the taxing authority of the Library District and approves the transfer of appropriations for Library operations.
