The Sacramento Public Library Authority is governed by a Joint Exercise of Powers Agreement
between the County of Sacramento and the Cities of Citrus Heights, Galt, Isleton, Elk Grove, Rancho Cordova, and Sacramento. The purpose of the Sacramento Public Library Authority is to provide public library services that provide open access to diverse resources and ideas that inspire learning, promote reading, and enhance community life to all citizens in our member jurisdictions.
The Sacramento Public Library Authority's governing board comprises representatives from each member jurisdiction based on population and includes all five members of the County Board of Supervisors, five council members from the City of Sacramento, two members from the City of Elk Grove, and one member from each city council for the Cities of Citrus Heights and Rancho Cordova. The Cities of Galt and Isleton are co-represented by a single councilmember currently from the City of Galt, with the City of Isleton serving as the alternate. The Library Director serves as the Authority's chief executive officer and as secretary of the governing board.
All meetings take place on the 4th Thursday of each month* from 3-5 p.m. at the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors Chambers located at 700 H Street. You may also attend on Zoom or watch the live cablecast on Metro Cable 14 or webcast on www.sacmetrocable.tv
