Commitment of Members
Foundation members expect to commit a reasonable amount of time and energy to the organization by attending a minimum of four meetings a year, taking active part in projects and serving as needed on committees.
CPLF is a nonprofit corporation established in 1979 by the Conrad Public Library Board of Trustees. It is separate from the Conrad Public Library, a tax-supported institution. A seven-member board directs the organization and is responsible for its activities and finances. Ideas to support the Conrad Public Library may come from any source but must be compatible with library goals and the overall plan for library services.
