Historic Library Board minutes

The Handley Regional Library Board began May 17, 1960, taking over responsibility for managing The Handley Library from the Handley Trustees. The first Library Board members were appointed by the Winchester City Council.

The library became a regional system in 1979 when Frederick County joined Winchester in supporting the library, and in 1981 Clarke County joined the regional system. The current Library Board is composed of 10 members, each of whom is appointed from the jurisdiction they represent.  There are 4 from Winchester, 5 from Frederick County, and one from Clarke County.

Board meetings and commitee meetings are open to the public.  Here are the minutes by year. ByLaws draft 1960
