One open slot on Library Board


Fayette County’s Library Board charged with recommending local policies and practices to the Fayette County Board of Commissioners where there is no County or Regional Library System Policy governing that area of service.


Among other duties, the Board is also charged with reviewing with all book material selections programs, plans, and policies to ensure that all views of the community are represented in the selection process.

Three members are appointed by the Fayette County Board of Commissioners. The cities of Fayetteville and Peachtree City and the towns of Tyrone and Brooks make one appointment each for the remaining four members.
