FOIA & Transparency

The Addison Public Library is committed to open and transparent governance. We are happy to work within the structures set up by various transparency laws to help our patrons find out what they need to know. This section will guide you to information about how the Library is funded and how the money is spent, along with statistics about the library's holdings, programs, and staff, and a calendar of Board meetings.

FOIA

Often we receive FOIA requests for information readily available. You may also want to review our policies, staff organization, and the information found on this and the budget page before submitting your request so you can obtain the information as quickly as possible.

Board Meeting Information

The Board meets on the 3rd Tuesday of every month in the Board Room on the 3rd floor on the Library. The Board encourages residents to attend meetings. If you have any questions or concerns about attending a meeting, please contact the director, Mary Medjo Me Zengue. Board meetings are recorded and aired on ACTV. They can also be viewed online.

We are required by law to have our agendas posted at least 48 hours prior to each meeting, and we are also required to have minutes posted within 10 days of their approval.

Budget

Budgets, Financial Audits, Expenditures, Compensation, and Taxes.

Lobbying

Members of the Library staff may meet with elected officials to advocate for the importance of libraries in the community. We do not hire outside lobbyists, and so has no direct lobbying contracts. We are a member of two lobbying organizations.

Contracts

The library does not have employee contracts. We have a Personnel Manual that covers benefits and expectations.
