Currently, library board trustee members serve four year terms. When a position becomes vacant any Dubuque resident who is 18 years or older is eligible to serve. Nomination papers are available from the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall (13th Street, Dubuque). A person can be nominated, or nominate themselves. Library board members are then appointed by the Mayor with City Council approval.
