What is the Siuslaw Public Library District?

The Siuslaw Public Library District is a stand-alone local government and taxing district covering a patchwork area across western Lane County. The District is governed by a five-member elected Board of Directors and managed by a Library Director. The Siuslaw Public Library District Board of Directors holds regular meetings the third Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. Meetings are generally held at the Library - 1460 9th Street in Florence, OR - in the Bromley Room. These meetings are open to the public. Please join us!  

The Siuslaw Public Library District has a vacancy on its Board of Directors due to the resignation of current Board Member Mark Tilton. The Board will interview applicants and appoint a replacement at a regular meeting on June 17, 2020. Individuals who would be interested in serving on the Library Board must submit a completed application and skill inventory form by 4:00 PM on Thursday, June 11, 2020.
