Hennepin County Library has full board

The Hennepin County Library Board is now filled.

Hennepin County Commissioners appointed four new members to the library board this week. All of Minneapolis, Roger Hale, Kathleen Lamb and John Pacheco, Jr., join the board. Eden Prairie resident Jill Joseph will be an at-large member.

As a result of the merger between the Hennepin County and Minneapolis library systems, the board expands from seven members to 11. The new members were selected with the help of the City Council and Mayor R.T. Rybak.
