The SELCO/SELS Board consists of appointees from the region’s citizens. The Board is responsible for fiscal oversight and setting regional library policy. SELCO was established in 1971 as a not-for-profit corporation and operates as a regional public library system as identified in Minnesota Statutes. As a federation of public libraries and counties, each public library member appoints an individual to serve on the Board. County members have the option of appointing an existing Board member from among the county residents or appointing an additional trustee to represent their interests at the regional level.
