Board of Trustees

Falher Regional Intermunicipal Library Board (FRILB)

On December 15, 2015, the Town of Falher and the Village of Donnelly jointly agreed to establish an intermunicipal library board to manage the provision of public library services for their residents. 

FRILB replaced the Town of Falher Library Board in March 15, 2016.  We provide library service in the same location in Falher and continued operations as the Falher Library / Bibliothèque Dentinger, in recognition of our bilingual history and the significant contributions of Mme. Marguerite Dentinger.

Board Membership & Current Trustees

The Board is comprised of 7 - 10 trustees, who are appointed by either the Town of Falher (8/10) or the Village of Donnelly (2/10) for terms of one to three years.

Board meetings

Our regular meetings are open to the public, and The Board meets at least once every four months, on the third Tuesday of the month for regular Board Meetings from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.   All meetings are currently being conducted virtually using ZOOM.  If you wish to attend as a guest (available by phoning in only) please contact our Library Manager, Doreen Horvath, for details on how to attend.  Delegation requests should be sent to the Board at falherregional.im.libraryboard@gmail.com.

Meeting agendas are posted online one week in advance of the meeting date. 

These will remain until the meeting minutes are posted, after they are approved by the Board.

Scheduled meeting dates and minutes from recent regular Board meetings are available below.  Minutes from previous periods are available upon written request to the Board.
