The Library Advisory Board consists of five member from the local community who have been appointed to serve a four-year term by the Downey City Council. The Board is chosen to represent the vision, interests and needs of the community. They attend monthly meetings with the Library Administrator and Senior Librarians to discuss recent events, activities and undertakings at the Downey City Library. The Board is regularly informed of ongoing trends, not only within the Downey City Library, but in librarianship more broadly. In addition, the Board has the opportunity to offer their input and recommendations to senior library officials on the operation and direction of the library.
