Library Commission

The Contra Costa County Library Commission was established by the Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors in March 1991.

The Library Commission is comprised of 24 voting members and 4 non-voting (ex-officio) members:

  • Eighteen members representing the cities/towns in Contra Costa County - these Commissioners are appointed by the city/town councils (Richmond does not participate)
  • Five members represent Contra Costa County - each member of the Board of Supervisors appoints one Commissioner
  • One member representing the Central Labor Council
  • Four Ex-Officio members representing the College District, East Bay Leadership Council, Office of Education and the Friends Council
