The five-member Board of Trustees governs the Del Norte County Library District.  Board members are elected to four-year terms under the terms of the California Election Code. Although members are elected at-large, geographic representation within the county-wide service area is welcomed.  During general elections, candidacy may be declared with the Del Norte County Registrar of Voters.

The DNCL Board of Trustees sets policy for library services throughout the District guided by the DNCL Mission Statement.  The Board also hires and holds accountable the DNCL Library Manager.  Beth Austen is the library manager.  Feel free to contact her directly at 707-464-9793.
