About the Livingston Parish Library Board of Control

The Livingston Parish Library Board of Control is the governing body for the Livingston Parish Library system.

Board members are appointed by the parish council and include residents from across Livingston Parish. Board members are appointed to five-year terms and may serve more than one term.

Regular library board meetings are held every other month (January, March, May, July, September, November) at 6:00 PM CST and are open to the public. 

Live Streaming

As of January 2024, the Livingston Parish Library Board of Control will provide a live stream of all its public meetings. 

This follows Act 393 of the 2023 Regular Session, which amended Louisiana's Open Meetings law to permit certain, eligible public bodies and agencies to conduct its open meetings via electronic means (e.g., videoconference or teleconference). 

All Board of Control meetings will be streamed on the Livingston Parish Library’s official YouTube page, until further notice.
