The Timberland Regional Library Board of Trustees (the “Board”) meets on the fourth Wednesday of each month. If the fourth Wednesday interferes with holidays or conferences, the meeting is held on the third or the fifth Wednesday. 

The meetings are at 5:30 p.m. and are held at either the Administrative Service Center (415 Tumwater Blvd. SW, Tumwater, WA 98501) or at one of the community libraries. The annual meeting is in December.

TRL Board meetings are open to the public and are noticed and held in accordance with Washington’s Open Public Meetings Act (RCW 42.30). For more information, see the Municipal Research and Services Center of Washington's information about the Open Public Meetings Act.

The seven-member Board is appointed by County commissioners of the five counties in TRL's district, with a trustee from each county and two additional trustees filling at-large positions.
