    • How can we encourage developers to use green building practices?

Library Board

The Board provides information, makes recommendations relating to the Shoreline and Richmond Beach Libraries, promotes programs and reviews library policies.

The Library Board has seven members and meets at 7 pm the 1st Thursday of each odd numbered month.
