The West Fargo Public Library Board of Directors is a volunteer group that advocates for the library’s value to community members, legislators and stakeholders. The group is a governing board that oversees the library’s finances, policies, operations, collection and long-term planning. Board members serve a three-year term with an opportunity for a second term possible. The time commitment is roughly 4 hours per month and each member must be a resident of West Fargo.
