Library Board

Meet Our Library Board

The Bayport Library Board normally meets the third Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm at the Bayport Public Library.  The public is welcome to attend any Library Board meeting.

Next meeting: December 15 at 6:00 pm

Everyone is welcome.  We will meet online via Zoom.

We are looking for one person to join our Library Board for a three year term, starting in January 2021.

The purpose of the Library Board is to approve expenditures of money collected for and contained within the library fund, as it relates to operations of the library buildings and grounds. In addition to monthly meetings, members must be willing to commit additional time, as necessary, to fulfill committee assignments.  The Library Board is responsible for hiring and evaluating the Library Director, approving library policies, and approving the annual budget.  The Library Board sets the strategic directions for the future of the Library.  In addition, the Library Board helps spread the word about Library programs and services in the community.   Members of the Library Board also work to increase both financial and community support for the Library.  If you are interested in applying, please fill out the Board application form and return it to Bayport City Hall, either in the secure drop box for general city correspondence near the front entrance, via email to or via mail to 294 3rd St. N, Bayport MN 55003.  You can contact Library Director Jill Smith if you have any questions.
