Board of Trustees
The Redford Township District Library is governed by a 7-member Board of Trustees. Five Trustees are appointed by Redford Township; the Redford Union Schools and the South Redford Schools each appoint one Library Trustee. Board members serve 4-year terms.
From March through September, 2012, we surveyed Township residents to learn what our community wants and needs from its library. We studied Redford’s changing demographics, and emerging library trends. With an outstanding committee of local advisors, we then worked to develop a strategic plan that will move us in the right direction. We are very excited to share the results!
The majority of the Library’s funding comes from local property taxes. Voters approved a 1 mill operating fund in perpetuity in 1994. With the decline in property values in recent years, the Library has been forced to draw more and more on its savings to operate. We rely on public support to provide our vital services.
