Fourth Thursday of every other month
Doug Holm - Chair
The Library Advisory Board was established in October 1976 by Town Council Resolution #710. The Board is charged with:

Proposing and recommending guidelines for programs and facilities to meet the needs of the community
Reviewing reports from the town librarian concerning library operations
Seeking ways of informing residents of library services and soliciting their comments
Library Tax Oversight Committee
On June 8, 2010, San Anselmo residents approved a Library Tax by passing Measure B with a 75.85 majority of votes cast. Library Tax funds are to be expended specifically to enhance general Library services, hire a Children's Librarian and increase hours of operation.
On November 23, 2010, the Town Council established the Library Tax Oversight Committee to ensure that the tax funds are spent according to the parameters setout in the Library Tax measure.
The membership of the committee is five seats, with one member representing the Library Advisory Board, one member representing the Friends of the Library, and three members representing the general public. The group will meet twice a year to review the Library budget. The terms of the members will be three years.
